Stories from DCU graduates who are transforming our world...


Dublin City University, the country’s fastest-growing university, today announced the first funding step of an ambitious €323m development programme which aims to future-proof the university’s graduates and align DCU’s research objectives with modern, global challenges. The programme will see DCU deliver significant global impact in areas such as education, connected health, 21st Century media, conflict resolution and water security; increase its geographical footprint in the North Dublin region through multi-campus growth; and double its student body.

Today’s launch of DCU/Shaping the Future – a €100m fundraising drive – will be followed by a series of significant announcements before the end of this year on major capital investments.

DCU/Shaping the Future will seek philanthropic support from private and corporate donors for a number of key projects which are featured on this website, aimed at securing DCU’s international leadership in areas such as research, innovation, teaching and learning, student experience and human capital.
