Is there a collective term for the senior administration of a university (dean and upwards)?

I am looking for something specific to the U.S., though not specific to a particular system (such as regents for the University of California).

    I think "senior administration" works very well as a collective term. Nov 19, 2011 at 18:03

    Yes many - but unfortunately all are unsuitable for a family website

You can use terms like directors or leaders, however senior administration is a quite accurate description. You could also consider senior staff.
