Instead of changing the agent type, you could add a new value to your Controlled Value List:  Name Source (name_source) list.  For example you can have a value of "university_corporate_body" or just university.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Creating new agent type for university offices?

Hello, we have a need to filter our agent records so that we can export and otherwise take bulk action on corporate bodies that are related to our university (offices, departments, etc.). It doesn't appear that there is a way to add an custom, university-related agent type beyond the standard set (person, family, corporate entity, software), I assume for good reason. Am I right, and if I can't, any advice on another way to add a "university corporate body" designation to these types of records?
