Student Life and Campus Contribution: Actions

Since the start of the 2018-2019 academic year, all students enrolling in academics initial in a higher education institution must pay the Contribution Vie Etudiante et de Campus (CVEC). With an annual amount of 92 €, one can be subject to it or be exempted from it depending on the case.

The CVEC is "intended to promote the reception and social, health, cultural and sports support of students and to reinforce the preventive and health education actions carried out for them" (article L. 841-5 of the Education Code).


Device for putting in work of the CVEC 

The USMB has established a specific system dedicated to the management of the CVEC, which is based on the collaborative development of projects for students.

1. Any ideas? All stakeholders (students, university services, associations, partners) can propose action sheets detailing their projects.

2. A student and campus life coordination committee (Co co) stimulates ideas, examines proposals for action and gives an opinion on the orientations and collaborations envisaged at the territorial level. The reflection is organised along 4 axes called "collaborative projects". It meets twice a year.

3. The opinions of the Student Life and Campus Life Coordinating Committee on the projects are then analysed within the CAC's CFVU Campus Life Commission before being proposed to the latter for adoption. These commissions may also be sources of ideas or be critical. Ultimately, the Board of Directors validates these areas of VEC development and allocates the necessary resources to each collaborative project.

4. Finally, an operational committee, made up of the VP Student, the VP academics and University Life, the VP CA Finance, the head of the Financial Affairs Department and the head of the Student Life Department, ensures that the actions are consistent with the objectives of the collaborative project and allocates the resources allocated to the actions.

Collaborative projects

Six collaborative projects are currently setting the pace for the development of student and campus life:

  • Reception and integration of students
  • Campus Life
  • Health well-being
  • Connected University
  • Equality
  • Cultural life

Each of the collaborative projects is led by a working group led by the Student and Campus Life Service (SVEC). Students are warmly invited to join these working groups and share their ideas.

The Université Savoie Mont Blanc is committed to guaranteeing equal access for students to digital resources in order to promote student success; it wishes, thanks to funding from the student and campus life contribution, to provide students with personalised support in mastering digital tools allowing access to educational content and various online services (schooling, student information, orientation and professional integration). But also to respond to the challenges of the digital divide via a bank of computer equipment.  

Promote a more supportive university environment for well-being and the educational success students regardless of their sex, gender, sexual orientation and disabilities through a cross-cutting and participatory approach toequalityof theequity and the diversity. This is done by studying the reality at the USMB, by carrying out information and awareness-raising actions and by setting up support processes for victims of discrimination and/or violence. 

On the campuses within and outside the walls, sports and artistic events provide privileged moments of exchange, encounters and pleasure. The challenge is to make the student an active participant in campus life by practising artistic activities that are part of the opening up to social life.  

Two main objectives for the academic year 2021/2022: 

  • A better understanding of the needs in terms of cultural life on campus and the cultural offer in the territories, 
  • Adapted cultural programming (shows, activities, artists' residencies, other) excluding models of academics.
