Org Node and Chartstring

Org Node

A Berkeley campus organizational unit with which an employee is associated.  The Org Node is identified as a 5-6 character code that references the unit’s place on the campus’s organizational tree hierarchy.

  • The org node is often used for assigning systems permissions and for routing transactions.
  • To find your org node, search for your name in the campus directory from the Berkeley home page.  Your org node is displayed in the capital letters in front of your home department. 
  • If you don’t have a home department, try searching this organization tree list for the department that is sponsoring your travel activity.
