ASSISTANT VICECHANCELOR


Explanation:
This is for British English; I do know in America they use the word Rector for RECTOR, but do not know how they call the VICERRECTOR.

Dean


Explanation:
In the U.S. I have often heard Dean used. Dean of Students, Dean of Teaching and Learning, etc. There are Associate Deans as well. In Spain there is a Vicerrector de Alumnos, and in my university in the States we had a Dean of Students, as well as several associate Deans. A quick search of the internet for "Dean of Students" or some of the other titles. Google gave quite a few responses. See also the internet reference below.
