Campus dynamics

The quality of the living and working environment, for both staff and students, will be an important part of the Target University’s policies. For staff, it is a source of professional wellbeing that enables them to successfully complete their missions, thereby contributing to the institution’s performance. For students, it is an important factor that plays a role in the success of their studies, as well as ensuring equal opportunities and the attractiveness of the institution. The Target University wants to be a driving force in this respect, with an ambitious organisation and ambitious policies for the campus, which will enable it to implement and coordinate a whole series of actions as closely as possible with staff and students, who will also be the actors of these developments.

This policy is based on an organisation over five major campuses:
  • LyonTech-la Doua;
  • Quais - Manufacture des Tabacs;
  • Lyon Santé Est & Sud;
  • Gerland / ENS;
  • Target-University@Saint-Étienne.

In addition to these five campuses, local centres (Bourg-en-Bresse and Roanne) will sustain the regional networking of the Target University and ensure a local dimension for the PFRs’ academic activities.

The Target-University@Saint-Étienne campus

Saint-Étienne will be a campus, in the international sense of the term, enabling the activities of the eight PFRs and of the EU1C to be rolled out. It will develop an offer in its region that is tailored to its regional missions, within the framework of the Target University. It will be fully aligned with the ambition of developing a research-intensive university and contributing to student success.

This campus will be based on:

  • Full and complete commitment to the PFRs’ academic policies, in order to work towards the overall development of the Target University and for the benefit of the region;
  • From 2020, definition of a trajectory leading to a target organisation of PFRs/campuses in line with the ambition of the Target University;
  • Definition of resources specific to the functioning of the campus in addition to those of the PFRs’ COMs;
  • Positioning as one of the contributors to an ambitious undergraduate programme.

The organisation of the Saint-Étienne campus makes it possible to take into account the specificities of Saint-Étienne’s local region, in particular:

  • Its privileged relationship with local authorities and companies; and
  • The major contribution of its Master’s level training and well-identified research strengths to the economic development of the region.
