The Academic Senate consists of 48 teachers nominated by the electoral assemblies of the disciplinary domains and 20 students. The Vice-Chancellor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and University Director have the right to participate in the Senate’s deliberations but not in its decisions.

The student representatives are selected in the manner determined by the students’ unions. The teachers serve for a three-year term and the students for one year. The Vice-Chancellor appoints a president and a vice-president from among the elected members, at the proposal of the Senate.
