The PRESE is funded by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec (MÉES) as part of the Programme de pôles régionaux en enseignement supérieur, or regional higher education hubs program.

It is governed by a Steering Committee composed of two respective members of management from each of Sherbrooke’s five higher education institutions.

The organization’s activities are overseen by a Coordinating Office.
