changing permissions on multiple folders at the same time

running Windows 2003 Server.

i have a users folder.  inside the users folder i have about 80 directories.

i need each directory to have security set to only allow the Administrators group and the particular user access to the directory.

is there a way to "batch" assign permissions for all of the directories, or do i have to do it folder by folder?
