unused; could replace the table in Mauritanian presidential election, 2003 if the format is better; but as it stands right now, it's an unused duplicate. Frietjes (talk) 19:29, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was merge to Template:Infobox university. (non-admin closure) Pkbwcgs (talk) 07:50, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:Infobox academic division with Template:Infobox university.
Two almost-identical templates, one ('academic division') a subset of the other ('university'); the university infobox is already used on many articles about divisions of universities (examples: SOAS, University of London, King's College London GKT School of Medical Education, The Institute of Technology at Linköping University). Merging such similar templates reduces the maintenance overhead; and the cognitive load on editors, as explained at Wikipedia:Infobox consolidation.

Support. Harsh Rathod Poke me! 11:20, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Support per nom. 277 transclusions isn't worth the maintenance, and (only-ever-so-slightly tongue-in-cheek) Infobox academic division is a really clunky name. Cabayi (talk) 11:35, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Support per nom. --Muhandes (talk) 12:09, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Support The way universities may be structured does not easily lend to editor's attempts at discovering whether two universities at the same campus are really one academic division which merely calls itself a university and its parent university, or two completely different universities. One could argue that the former does not need an academic division infobox to distinguish it from its parent, as it could just as easily be placed under {{infobox organization}} or even {{infobox school}} and no one would be the wiser.  Spintendo  13:49, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Example: Sushila Devi Bansal College of Technology, Indore and Sushila Devi Bansal College of Engineering, Indore (formerly Kailash Chandra Bansal Technical Academy) are in the same campus but different. Harsh Rathod Poke me! 14:30, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Support. If things were clear cut, it would be good to have separate infoboxes, since "X University Department of Y" might do well to have a different kind of infobox from "X University" because one might desire to display different kinds of information, but as noted above, "different" universities are often the same, e.g. Elizabeth City State University is just another piece of the University of North Carolina, so there's no clear division. Whether or not we use the same infobox for clearly different topics has to be decided separately for each infobox (or infobox pair), but when there's no real way to distinguish between two topics, it's pretty much guaranteed to be a bad idea to have separate infoboxes. Nyttend (talk) 15:34, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Support per nom. But I think we also need to think about some affiliated school or faculty, which's relation with main institute is quite complicated. Like Barnard College, University of Guelph-Humber, Huron University College e.t.c. ABCDE22 (talk) 19:16, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment It shouldn't be too difficult to merge as it is only a couple of parameters that needs to be transferred and I would be happy to merge Template:Infobox academic division with Template:Infobox university after this discussion. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:29, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Support - per nom and previous editors. --Gonnym (talk) 22:58, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Support I guess we shall have the 'academic division' infobox merged into the 'university' academic division. Just make sure that any information that the 'academic division' has but is not listed in the 'university' infobox, be listed in the "combined/merged" new 'university' infobox. Chongkian (talk) 04:47, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Support I agree with the merger. The distinction is largely defunct. 80.1.253.226 (talk) 17:18, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Agree. Shouldn't be tedious to merge, so go ahead! Oshawott 12 ==()== Talk to me! 06:33, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
