    This is a rather easy one that I should KNOW but I've drawn a blank. In Mexico the rector is the president? director? of the university and the governing body of the university is called a rectoria. Is there an equivalent for this kind of rectoria in English?

    To refer to one person, I would translate it as "the rector of the university". This is certainly not an unknown term in English; for example, one speaks of the Rector of the Pontifical North American College in Rome.

    Look up here, and scroll down to the paragraph titled "President and Chancellors," it might be of great help. Saludos, BJ.

    The administration. Ve esta página web. La administración está a cargo de todo asunto administrativo de la universidad, del manejo y dirección de la universidad.

    También hay el -board of trustees- son los que aconsjan a la administración. Es un conjunto de consejeros, sea directores externos, que tienen la suprema autoridad acerca de las póliticas. La junta directiva.

    Creo que rectoría tiene más en común con - the Administration-
