In Trinity College Dublin, we are extremely proud of the extra-curricular activity undertaken by students which ensures a vibrant campus and offers students diverse opportunities for learning, social development, and personal growth. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your extra-curricular activity.
The Dean of Students sponsors three awards to celebrate and recognise student volunteering in the community and in Trinity organisations such as the clubs, societies, SU, GSU, and publications. Students who are registered at the time of the application deadline are eligible to apply.
Dean of Students' Volunteer Awards 2023
The application process incorporates a reflective element, so that students can consider the impact of volunteering on themselves and the individuals/organisations with whom they volunteer.
Beginning with the 2020/2021 awards process we will incorporate a requirement to complete at least one reflection exercises using the reflective tool over 12 months as part of the qualifying criteria for these awards. These will not be assessed in and of themselves, but their completion is the relevant point. The resulting synthesis captured within the reflective exercise can be used to answer relevant questions in the application forms, if students wish to do so.

Wishing you the best of luck in your voluntary endeavours,
Prof. Catherine McCabe
