A Question on the Structure of Fields, Centres and Committees

Can anyone briefly explain to me, or point me to on-line information about, the raison d'ĂȘtre and operating characteristics of structures like the fields and centres at Cornell and MIT, or the interdisciplinary committees found at the University of Chicago?

I am asking wearing my hat of the chairman of the research council of my university, where we are mulling about the possibility of having similar structures. Thanks in advance for any information you might be able to provide!
