Embracing and Shaping Change

We live in exciting and challenging times. Through this strategy UCD will ‘rise to the future’, treating the challenges of our era as opportunities, re-examining holistically how and what we research, how we prepare our students for their futures and how we behave as an institution.

Uniquely in our history, and as an example of leading international best practice, this strategy identifies four strategic themes that will permeate every aspect of the institution. These themes have been identified through extensive consultation with both internal and external stakeholders and provide us with a future orientation through which we will contribute to the flourishing of Ireland and the world.

Plans for and delivery of our six key enablers are already well advanced, providing us with an excellent foundation on which to build. Although no one can see the future, through this strategy we will position UCD and our graduates to shape that future and to be successful in it.
