Assuming all the people in your department are in a group, you can just include a separate configuration based on group membership:
include = /etc/samba/%G_smb.conf
For your group, you should then create /etc/samba/mygroup_smb.conf:
comment = Homes
browsable = no
valid users = %S
path = %H
Etc etc etc
You might have problems with this if your department group is not your primary group membership...
