Respect is a central value in the life of our school. Students, teachers, doctoral students, staff members: every day, through our attitude, let’s foster a culture of inclusion, dialogue, responsibility and kindness to put a stop to inappropriate behavior!

In the framework of the Task Force Harassment A-Z & Promoting a Culture of Respect, a communication campaign has been launched at the start of the September 2021 academic year. This campaign will take place in three phases, the first of which aims to set out the values that the School wishes to promote at all levels.

Until further notice, the current services responsible for handling cases of harassment continue to operate.
