The University is organised and managed under the law of Liberties and Responsibilities of Universities (LRU), of August 10, 2007. The University is headed by a president, selected from the permanent professor-researchers, and elected for 4 years by the members of the University Board (CA). There are two other councils – the Research Commission (CR) and the Training and University Life Commission (CFVU) – and a committee – the Joint Technical Committee (CTP) – which together, contribute to University policy-making.
