    campus for university, meaning this person is the head of the entire campus of the university. There are several other campuses in other areas.
    This is still not clear. What sort of "head" do you have in mind? Are you speaking of the president of a university? And what does "the entire campus of the university" mean, especially when you then mention "several other campuses"? :confused:

    That's why I need help in this aspect.

    Our university has 11 campuses throughout the country. So, there is one head of campus for each and every campus. He is the person in charge of the campus, but he is NOT the president of the university. Is this clearer now?

    The usual practice in the United States is that the head of a branch of a multi-campus university is called either the president of that school (for example, each of the various local colleges of the State University of New York has its own president, such as the President of the State University of New York at Cortland, or President of the State University of New York at New Paltz; in the same way the branches of the California State University also have separate Presidents), or the chancellor of that branch (such as the chancellor of the Schuylkill Campus of the Pennsylvania State University.) "Head of campus", though, would sound odd to Americans as the title for an equivalent position.
