Five years of commitment to student life: launch of the 2022–2027 Student Life Master Plan

On The December 14, 2022

On December 14, 2022, Sciences Po Lyon hosted the launch event of the 2022-2027 Student Life Master Plan, supported by the Université de Lyon and the Crous de Lyon. This is an ideal opportunity to make the Student Life Master Plan available to all those involved in student life at the Académie de Lyon in order to implement new initiatives over the next five years.

The launch event of the SDVE (FR: Schéma directeur de la vie étudiante) 2022–2027, which brought together more than 110 participants, all of whom are involved in student life at the Académie de Lyon, was marked by two highlights:
  • A special morning, open to all, with a lecture entitled: “Being young in 2022. A sociological look at the challenges of student life and student commitment” by Béatrice Decoop, founder of So Youth!
  • A lunch and an afternoon for SDVE advisers and the staff from dedicated services (student life, culture, mission handicap, health, sport and student support) with discussion workshops, as well as a feedback session, focusing on the following questions:
    • How can we develop each other’s actions?
    • How can we co-construct by decompartmentalizing and working in harmony?
    • How can we continuously adapt our initiatives to the needs of students?

The aim of this special day was to continue ongoing work with the institutions and local authorities (see list opposite) involved in the technical committees since the 2021 consultation, and to better involve them in this collective strategy to improve student well-being.


The Université de Lyon and the Crous de Lyon intended for this approach to encompass all the issues involved in student life: students themselves, their study conditions, access to their rights, independence, but also their ecosystem, access to information, digital technology, the ecological emergency, etc. 

This has resulted in a project that focuses on the local context of the Académie de Lyon, but which also aims to integrate the various site policies.

 This Student Life Master Plan will enable us to support the actions that will take place in the coming years without being overbearing. This flexibility is essential to meet the expectations of students who are also adapting to new developments.
