Leaders in Knowledge Creation

At DCU, we are committed to maintaining and building our competitive position in terms of academic excellence and our international research profile. The Leaders in Knowledge Creation project enables us to attract and retain the best academic talent through promotion, retention and strategic appointments.

Since the launch of Shaping the Future in October 2015, our supporters have enabled us to create new Academic Chairs in areas of strategic importance for the University and for society such as the Desmond Chair in Early Childhood Education, AIB Chair in Data Analytics and the Prometric Chair in Assessment.

By valuing and investing in our most valued resource, our staff, with the help of our supporters we will continue to build inspirational leadership, conduct world-class research and to provide a transformative education for our student community.
