The Directorate is a sub-faction within the Institute consisting of all the division heads. Led by a Director, the Directorate serves as the governing body of the Institute.

Overview

The Institute allows humans to live in a clean, safe, comfortable environment, free from the strife and environmental hazards present on the surface.[1] Over the decades of isolation and development, the Institute has developed a very effective system that maximizes efficiency and promotes individual development and research. The leadership over the Institute is in the hands of the Directorate, made up of the individual heads of each division, and one specially-appointed Director.[2] The divisions of the Institute are fairly autonomous, perfectly capable of functioning without intervention. Where those divisions interact, however, problems can arise. As such, the Director is appointed to set policy, resolve disputes, and otherwise act as an intermediary.[3]

Organization

As stated above, the Directorate consists of five members: One Director and heads of each of the five divisions:

    Shaun: "Most divisions of the Institute are fairly autonomous, perfectly capable of functioning without intervention. Where those divisions interact, however, problems can arise. You'd lead the Directorate in setting policy, resolving disputes, and the like. There's no question that some of the Directorate, and the Institute at large, will need reassurances about your appointment. That's why I'd like you to take charge of this latest operation. Doctor Filmore can fill you in on the details. There are hard decisions ahead. For all of us, but for you especially. I know that you'll do the right thing."
