Trinity College Dublin has entered into a co-trusteeship with its associated college, the Marino Institute of Education. It will provide a framework for the sharing of support facilities such as counselling and student accommodation at the Marino site and the potential sharing of some sports facilities. The co-trusteeship will offer a new focus for the development of activities of mutual interest in the constantly evolving world of education.

Trinity College Dublin has a long connection with Marino Institute of Education since the mid-seventies in teacher education, and the university continues to accredit the academic programmes and award University of Dublin qualifications.

Trinity College Dublin Provost, Dr Patrick Prendergast, and President of Marino Institute of Education, Dr Anne O’Gara pictured with the trustees and Christian Brothers at the signing of the co-trusteeship.

Marino Institute of Education was established by the Irish Christian Brothers who until 2011, were the sole trustees. Following an invitation from the Christian Brothers to join them as co- trustees, the Board of Trinity College Dublin appointed two trustees, the Registrar, Professor Shane Allwright and Mr Michael Gleeson, who together with two Christian Brothers, Brothers John Burke and Michael Murray, will form the new Trust.

Commenting on the significance of the collaboration, President of Marino Institute of Education, Dr Anne O’Gara said: “In a time of great change, the strengthening of the longstanding relationship between Marino Institute of Education and Trinity College Dublin offers new opportunities for the development of a shared vision for Irish education which will strive to ensure that a first-class education becomes more accessible to all our citizens.”

The Provost of Trinity College Dublin, Dr Patrick Prendergast, also welcomed the possibilities which the new relationship may provide and expressed satisfaction that the historic positive links between the two institutions would continue to the benefit of both institutions.
