The Academic Senate

The Academic Senate is a new body which has been proposed by Université Paris Cité, as part of the derogations permitted by the University Charter, in order to create strong collegial academic governance as appropriate for a university organised into different Faculties. The Senate is composed of 53 members from the Faculty Boards and the IGPG Board and is responsible for defining the main principles regarding teaching, research and innovation policies, within the framework of the broad guidelines set by the Executive Board. It meets on a monthly basis.

Faculty Boards

Each Faculty board does not exceed 40 members. Each Faculty Board is composed of elected academics, BIATSS staff and student representatives as well as designated personalities (partly from other Faculties and the component institutions, and partly from outside the institution). Faculty boards determine the distribution of resources and appoint academics and administrative staff within the framework defined by the Academic Senate.
