Groups within groups

What if your group falls under more than one parent organization, i.e. a lab within a center within a division within a department?

Since there’s only room for one affiliated group above your name in the header, consider the following options:

  1. Pick the group that sits one level above yours hierarchically, i.e. department for division, division for section, and so on.
  2. Don’t include one in the header. Instead, explain how your group fits into those other groups elsewhere on your site, like an About or Contact page.
