An Imperial Institution is a section of the Empire established to
fulfil a specific goal or provide a particular type of service for The Galactic
Empire as a whole... An example is the Imperial Academy, which
administers officer training throughout the Empire.
Typically, only those in the commanding body of an Institution –
which is usually limited to a single director – hold full–time positions. Any
other subordinate "membership" positions – should they exist – are
typically "part–time" (held by officers in addition to their duties
in another section of the Empire).
Inherently, the definition of an Institution is more flexible than
that of a full Division, and in practice may differ
at least partially from the "typical case".
