DCU has launched a new volunteer strategy which hopes to develop further pathways for DCU students to volunteer and engage civically in their local communities and beyond.
The strategy forms part of the wider university strategic plan and is led by DCU Volunteer, who act as a bridge between the university, its staff, students and connected communities locally, nationally and internationally.
“I see this, the first such strategy amongst higher education institutes, as a great achievement” – Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring TD
Ruth Lynam, Student Volunteer Coordinator at DCU and DCU representative on the Campus Engage Student Volunteering Working Group noted:
“Volunteering is one way in which we can support our students to realise their value as civic anchors in society – building a sustainable future of active engagement and contribution to the public good. Our mission is to engage, inform and inspire our students to be civically driven and active in their communities.”
