Student-led engagement (SLE) at DIT

DIT Societies are run by the students for the students and supported by the staff of the society’s office through advice, administration and finance. They endeavour to develop the “community” on campus through the provision of activities, events, entertainment, and development opportunities. There are over 35 extra annual “special events” both big and small, which students are involved in running. The last number of years has seen a huge increase in society’s membership and the number of events on and off campus. Societies are now an integral part of college life and a huge retention tool in keeping students of all ages and nationality in college. They provide a huge range of activities for all those who want to get involved, a selection of these include:

  • volunteering opportunities
  • training and leadership opportunities
  • trips away
  • student lead media/newspaper
  • debating
  • conferences
  • guest speakers
  • social nights
  • drama festival
  • dance contests
  • intervarsities
  • exhibitions

The Societies staff can be contacted at teri@socs.dit.ie or at neil@socs.dit.ie. The chaplaincy staff can be contacted at Mary.Flanagan@dit.ie
