    Try to get the title correct. 'Head' is the term normally used to describe the person at the helm of a department. The person helming a university might be a Vice-Chancellor or Rector or President.

    No. The answer is the same as natkretep's previous post.

    What do you mean by "parcel?" I hope it's something innocuous, but in today's world, packages, even with a precise address can be very suspicious.

    I suspect that you really want to route something to a particular department, but please let us know.

    Additionally, if you have access to the Internet, there's little excuse for not being able to find out the precise title and name of somebody at a university.
