Good afternoon! Can anyone please let me know if "Head Dean" would be the correct translation of Rectora General? On the same university's website, I've seen the terms "academic dean" and "assistant dean", so I know "dean" is correct, but I'm not sure how to translate "general". Thank you!!!

"Para la celebración se contó con la presencia de todo el claustro académico, alumnos y miembros de la comunidad universitaria y de manera especial estuvo presente la Dra. Fernanda Llergo Bay, Rectora General del Sistema UP-IPADE."

    I have seen it translated as superintendent, but I don't know if that is correct in this situation.

    I think this might be "Chancellor." Head dean sounds wrong.
