Our organisation


The general principle of governance, as defined in the institution's bylaws, specifies that the President of the Université Gustave Eiffel, through his decisions, the Board of Directors, through its deliberations, the Academic Council, through its deliberations, opinions and orientations, the Student Parliament, through its deliberations, opinions and orientations, and the Ethics Committee, through its opinions and orientations, ensure the administration of the university.

Through its two flagship missions of sustainable development, corporate social responsibility and equality, the university is pursuing its commitment to society.

The Equality Mission

The aim of this Mission is to promote gender equality within the company and, more generally, respect for people of all sexes and genders, whatever their sexual orientation. This essentially involves support, prevention, training and communication.
