Central Committees

In compliance with the law of 10 August 2007 regarding the freedoms and responsibilities of universities:
"UPMC has a executive body, the President, a deliberative body, the Board of Directors and two study bodies, the Science Committee (CS) and the Studies and University Life Committee (CEVU). The three central committees are made up of elected members and external participants".

The Board

The Board determines the institutional policy. The Board governs, through its deliberations, all issues concerning the organization and functioning of the University. It determines institutional policy, general objectives and coordinates the activity of its faculties. It votes on the budget, the allocation of grants and jobs, discusses the institutional contract with the state, decides on research credits, determines the use of the premises, approves agreements and accords, etc.


The SC is consulted and can express its wishes as to the institutional contract, the directions taken in research policy, doctoral studies and scientific and technical documentation, the distribution of research credits, etc. More generally, the SC has the authority to give its opinion on any issue that may have a scientific impact.


The “CEVU” is consulted and can express its wishes as to the directions taken in the teaching of courses (both for regular students and mature students), the orientation of their studies, the validation of skills and their integration into professional life. It proposes measures to promote cultural and social activities, sports and associations and to improve the living and working conditions of students. It guarantees the political and union-related freedoms of students.
