Organizational structure is important in any business to ensure that organizational mission and goals are being met. The structure defines roles, establishes a hierarchy, and creates the culture for the organization. Establishing the structure will assist with communication, decision-making and the overall culture of the organization. Gaston College expressed a need to redesign their structure by combining all their nursing programs to create a School of Nursing. Currently, each nursing-related program is separated into their own departments/programs. This includes faculty and staff assigned to one program instead of allocating staff to multiple programs. This project consists of defining new roles, tracking faculty time, and monitoring the use of adjunct faculty.
