  -> Thank you, Muriel. I do agree with you. I only found the term "Collegiate" in Brazilian websites.

agree  Lawyer-Linguist: your final answer only, just Board of Directors - collegiate as an adjective is used almost exclusively again in translated texts, from Brazil in this particular case, but is a habit we shouldn't encourage.
