    Note my corrections above. We don't start questions with "How to". In which country is the university you are referring to?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    A how-to is an informal, often short, description of how to accomplish a specific task. A how-to is usually meant to help non-experts, may leave out details that are only important to experts, and may also be greatly simplified from an overall discussion of the topic.

    The university is in a non native English speaking country.

    Yes, but you asked a question, and emsr2d2 was showing you the correct way to ask it!

    It's okay to use "how to refer to the head of the university" as a title/heading, for example; but it's not okay to use it to ask a question.

    And a quick look in Google suggests that Sudan does not use terms universally- I saw one university with a rector and another with a vice-chancellor.
