The Central Councils

The Board of Directors and the Academic Council are the university’s central councils, made up of elected representatives of teaching staff, administrative staff, students and external personalities (appointed and elected), and are responsible for the university’s administration.

The Board of Governors (Conseil d’administration - CA): determines the university’s policy, notably by deliberating on the content of the establishment’s contract. It votes on the budget and approves the accounts.
The Academic Council (CAC): includes members of the Research Commission and the Training and University Life Commission.

The Commission on Education and University Life (CFVU): (the Commission de la formation et de la vie universitaire)  notably adopts the allocation of resources earmarked for training, the rules governing examinations and the evaluation of teaching. This includes measures:
  • enable the implementation of student orientation and the validation of prior learning,
  • facilitate students’ entry into working life, to promote cultural, sporting, social or community activities offered to students,
  • improve living and working conditions,
  • encourage the acceptance and success of students with disabilities.


The Education and University Life Commission is also consulted on component academic programs.

Research Commission (CR): the Research Commission allocates the resources earmarked for research by the Board of Directors, and sets the operating rules for laboratories after consultation with the relevant faculty council. It is also consulted on agreements with research organizations, and adopts measures to enable students to develop activities to disseminate scientific, technical and industrial culture.

Faculty councils

Sorbonne University is made up of three faculties:
The Faculty of Arts and Humanities; The Faculty of Health Sciences; The Faculty of Science and Engineering.

Each faculty is administered by a board. The statutes of each faculty determine the composition of the board.  Through its deliberations, the Faculty Council regulates the affairs of the Faculty.  In particular, it contributes to the university’s research, education, student life and campus life policies, as well as to the development of the university’s institutional strategic plan.

You can only vote electronically. No paper ballots will be cast. The service provider, selected as a "trusted third party", will send each voter an identifier enabling them to secure their password and vote from a personal or professional computer, tablet or smartphone.
The electronic voting platform is accessible to the visually impaired.

Computers will be deployed at a number of sites, to enable voters without a computer, tablet or smartphone to cast their vote. The list of locations will be published shortly.
