I've just moved to a new college and it's clear that some organization/reorganization is going to be needed in the IT area. We're working on doing the EDUCAUSE Core Data Survey to be able to benchmark against institutions similar to us, but that data doesn't really help with the organizational structure piece.

If you are at a small private college -- we are 2200 students, so ideally in the 2-3000 student range -- would you be willing to share your central IT org chart with me (either by sending it directly, or sharing a link to where I can find it on your site)? I'd also be interested in knowing if all IT services are centralized, or if there are services that are offered elsewhere in the college, and if so, what services and where are they housed?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Raechelle,

  Saint Peter's College in Jersey City is a small private Jesuit College with approximately 3000 undergrad and graduate students. 

  Administrative and Academic computing is outsourced to Ellucian (previously Sungard Higher Education). 

  I have attached a copy of our ITS Org Chart from 2011 which has not changed since its creation.

  Let me know if you have any questions.

UNSW – Australian Defence Force Academy is a small college of the University of New South Wales in Australia.


We have around 2500 enrolled students (undergrad and graduate students) and about 360 FTE staff.

I have attached for your reference our ICT services organisational chart. All IT services are centralised, we have fully completed the centralisation process about 18 months ago.


I would be interested in the responses you receive to find out how our structure compares with similar organisations in US.

There are many ways to structure your org chart that would work just fine.  It one thing that I feel is important is a Security Office that reports directly to the CIO.  In a small shop, having a Security Officer may seem like a luxury you can not afford.  I would suggest it is a necessity that you can not do without.

Small college IT staff wear many hats.  CISO's at biggers school are 1/100th to 1/400th of IT.  When you have 10 or 20 IT staff, it is part of a job, more than likely the CIO's or the best systems and network person.
