UCD introduces its newly established UCD in the Community Team!

As well as welcoming close to 5,000 new students in September, 2016, UCD is also excited to introduce its newly established UCD in the community team!

The team have been recently established to support UCD in its commitment to civic and community engagement strategy and the National Campus Engage Charter -  to create a space that is conducive to support students and staff to deliver social impact from their work. 

A key part of the team’s remit is to build and enhance UCD relationships with civic and civil society organisations (CSOs) to identify and address grand social challenges in partnership.

During this early phase of implementation the team are busy establishing themselves on campus and making new contacts and relationships. They are keen to meet and talk with colleagues and CSOs who have an interest engaged research, community-based teaching and learning, volunteering and metrics and evaluation.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you are interested to learn what UCD’s strategy will be, or are keen to work together.

Led by: Prof Joe Carthy, Dean of Science, UCD & Campus Engage Steering Committee member.
