How to create an Administrative Division

User Roles: Institutional Admin
Outcome: The user creates an Administrative Division, which is equal to the Department level in the AEFIS hierarchy.  Administrative Divisions can only be owned by Administrative Units.  If you need to create an Administrative Unit, please see this guide.
Description: Because the data files imported into AEFIS may only represent the Academic hierarchy as they relate to courses, AEFIS offers the option for Admins to create their administrative hierarchy for collection of co-curricular data across Units and Departments such as Career Services, Student Affairs, Student Life or Financial Aid.  A structure of Administrative Unit (College)>Administrative Division (Department)>Program or Co-Curricular Activity(Course) can be built.  This structure can be utilized in any of the AEFIS solutions, such as Curriculum Mapping + Outcomes Alignment or Course Evaluation + Feedback.  This is also commonly used for the Strategic Planning + Data Collection solutions.
