As Dublin City University enters its third decade, I am very pleased to take up the role of Chairman of the DCU Educational Trust and to welcome you to the Trust's website. This site serves to inform our stakeholders and the broader public of the work we in the Trust do and of our core mission to build philanthropic relationships that advance the vision and mission of Dublin City University.
The DCU Educational Trust has been pursuing this mission for over twenty years, and just as we took a lead role in the development of the physical campus, our North Dublin home in Glasnevin, we now seek to further strengthen the most important asset of the university, its people. From our support of scholarship initiatives to promote equity and excellence in our student body to our seed funding of vital research in areas such as ethics and health science, the Trust continues to help build DCU as a leading global university.
On behalf of my fellow board members and the staff of the Trust, welcome to the DCU Educational Trust website. We invite you to join us in our work, to get involved in the many activities and initiatives here at Dublin City University and to consider support for our vital efforts to promote educational excellence here in Ireland.
