Departments

The word department is not capitalized when being used in a general sense.

For example: The chief role of the department is to ensure that a strong, positive image of the university is communicated proactively to all internal and external audiences.

The word department should be capitalized only when it is part of a formal name.

For example: The Department of National Defence is an agency within federal government.
