Openness, the right to be different and the willingness to create a humanist society have been at the heart of Efrei’s culture since it was established in 1936. Today, with Efrei For Good, the School displays its ambition to train responsible engineers and digital experts.
Efrei for Good expresses Efrei’s willingness to integrate sustainable issues at the heart of its strategy as a major actor in private higher education. The objective is to encourage a new way of taking action that requires the Efrei community to include its values of sustainable development in its activities.
Efrei for Good seeks to integrate sustainable development issues in its teaching, its research, the associations’ activities, and the conduct of the School. It aims to encourage students and employees, to have responsible behavior as actors of digital transformation that incorporates social and environmental issues.

The objective of the mission is to support students with disabilities as closely as possible throughout their studies to maximize their chances of success. This objective is reflected in the implementation of extra support adapted to each disability.
The disability mission is available to all students with disabilities, recognized or not, or experiencing health problems.
The actions of the mission focus on improving the study conditions of students encountering difficulties, whether temporary or long-term:
Our campuses are accessible for people with disabilities.
Created in October 2020, the Solidarity mission offers an answer to the general deterioration in students’ quality-of-life on campus amplified by the health crisis since 2020.
In this unstable economic, social and health context, the number of students that are suffering or finding themselves with considerable personal and financial difficulties tends to increase. Indeed, their daily lives and their studies have logically been affected.
The actions of the mission are based on the improvement of students’ studying conditions for those who have difficulties, whether they be temporary or long-term:

The Gender Equality mission is part of the school’s values on the right to be different and the fight against discrimination. In a context of male/female numerical imbalance at the school (81% of male students), the mission affirms women’s right to the same careers as men and ensures “living well together” and mutual respect. The mission works closely with all the members of the PECD, and in particular the anti-harassment unit on all sexist and sexual harassment issues.
The objectives of the Gender Equality Mission:
The social environment of higher education and research is unfortunately not spared from harassment. This violates the dignity and respect of everyone in our establishments. The Anti-Harassment Mission is part of the school’s values on the right to be different and the fight against discrimination.
Whether in places of study, work, internships, on the internet or in public spaces, the law protects anyone who reports acts of harassment, whether being a victim or a witness. It can be for example:

The Social Openness mission is part of a common movement of the top-ranking French higher education establishments (Grandes écoles) aiming to make higher education more accessible to children from disadvantaged social classes.
The CGE (Conference of Grandes Écoles) defines this action as follows: “The Social Openness Group” (GOS) was created in 2005 to serve as an exchange platform to support the development of initiatives in favor of social openness and equal opportunities in higher education institutions. Within the Social Openness Group (GOS), most schools are committed to facilitating access for disadvantaged social classes to the Grandes Écoles. Information, awareness-raising, support, tutoring, agreements with public authorities… many measures are deployed to achieve this. »

The Anti-racism Anti-semitism Mission is part of the school’s values on the right to be different and the fight against discrimination at the school.
Raise awareness among students to racism and anti-semitism in all its forms. These are the fundamental values of the French Republic: freedom, equality, fraternity and secularism.
It is about leading a fight against the normalization of hatred. Every word, insult, misconduct or gesture of a racist or anti-Semitic nature must be fought from the outset. This is to avoid any escalation and excess which everyone knows can lead to confrontation. It’s also to lead a fight against conspiracy theories and the identity and communitarian drifts that often accompany them.
