    Default Help with some words

    Dear all,

    I'm new to this forum. By circumstances I found myself translating an important document for the College I work for. The text has some words /sentences that I am not sure how to best translate. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    These are the words: (complete sentences in parenthesis)

    College
    Board of Trustees
    Alumni (named for the College's most illustrious Alumni)
    Lifetime (lifetime service)
    Endowed Professorship

    Muchas gracias.

    college = universidad
    board of trustees = junta directiva
    Alumni = Alumni (as it is latin it can be used the same.)

    College = universidad is correct. However, if this is a college within a university, as in, College of Jouralism of ... Univeristy, this should be Facultad.
    Board of Trustees - Consejo de Fiduciarios o Fideicomisarios adds the element of legal ownership and final authority.
    Alumni (named for the College's most illustrious Alumni) Ex-alumno más ilustre
    Lifetime (lifetime service) = servicio de vida
    Endowed Professorship = Profesorado Dotado
