University College Cork has launched a new website and campaign Together with Community Through COVID-19, an online platform for sharing resources and news about how UCC is engaging with people and organisations to adapt to and overcome the challenges ahead. Alongside the IUA’s Irish Universities help fight the pandemic, this initiative shares the many ways UCC’s alumni, students and staff are working together with community partners to advance the national response to COVID-19.
The President of University College Cork Professor Patrick O’Shea said that,
“Locally and globally, our societies are now faced with a period of turmoil that we understand will be transformative. Nationally, we see communities across Ireland coming together in the spirit of collective effort the public health response has called for. The importance of the third mission of our University – service to society and outreach – has become more evident and more essential than ever.”
