The UFR Board and the Director of the UFR determine and implement the component’s general policy, based on proposals by two statutory commissions:

- the Education Commission advises the Board in the area of education and training, fosters reflection on students’ professional insertion and ensures course consistency and assessment.
- the Research Commission advises the Board on the quality of the research projects conducted by the UFR’s research teams and coordinates and promotes the priority research themes.

Two other non-statutory commissions are appointed:

- the Personnel Commission is responsible for identifying and informing the UFR Board of the needs in terms of personnel

- the International Relations Commission manages student and staff exchanges as well as international agreements.
