Dear Daniel,

Did you see http://linkeduniversities.org yet? It is a (still) small 
group of people involved with linked educational/institutional data.

There is a page Vocabularies [1] that lists some useful vocabularies. It 
has the AIISO ontology [2], which could be what you're looking for.
And today, the second email was sent to their list [3]. (I'm just on 
that list, not really involved with publishing institutional data myself.)

Regards,

Ben
