Adapted and Agile Governance Serving an Academic Community

This organization must encourage the development of transversal scientific and pedagogical initiatives between faculties. The aim will be to take advantage of the disciplinary diversity of the communities and to build an original training offer, from the first cycle to the doctorate.

Three largely autonomous faculties and one institute acting within the framework of a strategy set by the university,
A tightened Board of Directors that sets the main strategic orientations,
An academic Senate and faculty councils for day-to-day management.
