The President is assisted by three Vice-Presidents elected by their respective Councils.

The Board of Directors (BoD)

The board of directors is the decision-making body of the university: it determines the general policy of the institution. To this end, it defines the medium- and long-term strategy within the framework of the institution's contracts with its supervisory body (five-year contracts), by drawing up and voting on the institution's strategic note.

Within the framework of this policy, it also defines the university's annual resources, in terms of jobs and budget. It also votes annually on the human resources policy and the university budget, before approving the financial accounts (subject to annual certification by an auditor).

In accordance with the institution's strategy and depending on the means available, it studies and approves all actions and changes in terms of research, training and professional integration.

Finally, it is to the Board of Directors that the President reports on the decisions taken in the course of his duties.
