Governance

The Institute's governance is, as a pontifical school, largely made up of Roman Catholic hierarchy. The Grand Chancellor is the Cardinal Vicar of the Diocese of Rome, currently Agostino Cardinal Vallini. The Vice-Chancellor of each session is the ordinary of the diocese in which it is located. The first two presidents of the Institute, Carlo Caffarra and Angelo Scola, were later made cardinals.

Academics

The Institute confers the pontifical degrees of Doctor and Licentiate of Sacred Theology with emphasis in marriage and family studies, as well as other graduate-level diplomas in the field corresponding to the individual sessions. Due to the specialized nature of the Institute, it does not confer the more general degree of Bachelor of Sacred Theology, which is typically a prerequisite for the other pontifical degrees.
