I am writing a report about the Dean's visit to campus assisted by the deputy dean and the English head of the faculty. What is that one word that I can use to call them in a group? Delegates? Entourage? They are all ladies.

    "Visitors."

    "Delegates" are delegated by someone to do something. "Entourage" refers to the group of associates or assistants who travel with an important person (it doesn't include the important person herself).

    Are they from your own university or from another university? If they represent another uni, you could talk about the delegation from University X, I suppose.

    I don't think you should say 'administrators' because it sounds as if they don't bring in any academic input.

    You can go along the lines of 'faculty leadership' or maybe 'faculty management'.
