The Academy is governed by a President, who acts with the assistance of the Chancellor and of the Council of the Academy. The President is appointed by the Holy Father from among the Academicians, for a renewable four-year term, and reports to him directly. The Council includes the outgoing President for a period of four years, the former President appointed by the Holy Father President Emeritus for life and up to seven Councillors appointed for a four-year term by the Holy Father, after being proposed by the President. The Councillors can also be reappointed. The Council meets at least twice a year at the Academy’s headquarters.
