Update from the Dean of Graduate Studies

We were delighted with the response to our College-wide survey. Over the past months, we have done extensive analysis of the several thousand responses and built a working plan of action.

Given the ambition for change, we have broken our workplan down into three horizons. It is clear that there are some things we can address over the coming 12 months, but other deliverables will take more time to understand, plan for, and implement.

Horizon 1 focuses on Clarifying and Simplifying some of our core activities. In Horizon 2 we aim to Enhance those activities, with a view to Transforming how we do our business in Horizon 3.

Some of what we hope to achieve will require significant investment. Our goal is to ensure that we fully understand what we want to achieve, so that when we invest, we deliver the target outcome.

We will be field-testing many ideas and initiatives over the coming 12 months and will be reaching out to staff and students for your feedback. We’re also open to hearing from you at any time. Share your ideas, your pet irritations, and your great experiences. We want to ensure that the changes we make do not disrupt things that are working well and delivering for everyone. For all your suggestions, is open for business!

Ní neart go cur le chéile – Our strength comes from working together,

Professor Martine Smith
Dean of Graduate Studies
