Why vote?

The Board of Directors and the Scientific Council are central bodies where the institute's general policy is decided and its rules of life determined. Students therefore have an important role to play, and only a high level of participation will give your representatives legitimacy in debates.

So, the Board of Directors deliberates on:

- The general orientations of the establishment;
- The teaching and research program and the establishment contract;
- The rules governing student admission;
- The budget and its modifications;
- The financial account and the allocation of results;
- The establishment's internal regulations;
- Acquisitions, disposals and exchanges of real estate;
- Borrowings, the acquisition of financial holdings and the creation of subsidiaries;
- Gifts and bequests;
- Legal actions and settlements.

As for the Scientific Council, it:

- analyzes the educational and scientific situation of the establishment;
- participates in drawing up the teaching and research program;
- is consulted on the allocation of budgeted research credits;
- is consulted on the creation of professorial posts.

Who do we vote for?

Each student votes for a representative from his or her college ("first-year undergraduate students", "doctoral students" or "other students").
Student representatives are committed to defending your interests on the Board of Directors and Scientific Council alongside representatives of the teaching and administrative staff.
