The governance of Sorbonne University is an executive body composed of the president, the deans of each faculty, a team of vice presidents, as well as a student vice president.
Responsible for steering the institution, this integrated governance leads a common policy, guaranteeing the continuity of the public service of higher education, research and innovation. It is supported by the faculty teams who implement the strategic plans in a way that is adapted to the specificities and expectations of their communities.
The Faculty’s governance is handled by the dean’s office and the faculty board. Members of the dean’s office provide the dean with strategic and administrative support. The faculty board is chaired by the dean and defines the Faculty’s policy, in keeping with the institution’s goals and purpose. Faculty matters are resolved by the faculty board through deliberations, after consulting the appropriate commissions when required.
