2. About Trinity College Dublin

2.1 General Overview

Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin was founded by Queen Elizabeth I in 1592 and is Ireland’s oldest and leading University.* In 2019/20 there were approximately 19,000 students of whom some 5,500 are postgraduates. There are approximately 800 full-time academic staff and a large number of part-time academic staff. The overall number of staff is approximately 4,500 full-time-equivalents. Most of the main academic disciplines are represented in the University. In part residential, the University occupies a historic campus site in the heart of Dublin. Its fine buildings, built over the centuries, create a collegiate atmosphere, which provides an excellent environment for research and teaching. Trinity College houses one of only six libraries in Ireland and the UK to benefit from the privilege of legal deposit under both UK and Irish legislation.

Trinity is Ireland’s premier research-led University. In its Strategic Plan 2020-25, the University asserts “we stand up for research, its quality and impact”. Trinity is committed to delivering world-class research for societal and economic benefit and recognises that the research with the power to change the world may come in the form of curiosity-driven, topic-driven, and translational research. Trinity holds 44 of 105 European Research Committee Investigator awards nationally (42%). The biggest research funder in Ireland is Science Foundation Ireland and Trinity researchers secure almost 25% of that budget. In 2018 Trinity was the highest-performing university in Ireland for High Potential Start- Up (HPSU) company generation. Between 2015 and 2019 Trinity had research collaborations with 4,759 institutions in 134 countries/regions, resulting in nearly 11,000 co-authored publications. Trinity’s Research Strategy can be viewed at this link. https://www.tcd.ie/research/assets/pdf/Research%20Excellence%20Strategy.pdf .

Trinity College is fortunate in attracting the best students from Ireland and abroad. In 2020, Trinity attracted 27% of all undergraduate applicants to degree programmes across the Irish higher education sector; 12% choose Trinity as their first preference. Its student body is internationally highly diversified with 10% of its students coming from other European countries and 18% from countries outside Europe.

The accessibility of a Trinity education to all students of ability and the enabling of lifelong learning are important elements of its contribution to Ireland’s future. Trinity has a number of pioneering initiatives and ambitious targets to broaden access for students from non-traditional learner groups and from disadvantaged backgrounds.

In accordance with the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan there are a number of key strategic capital projects underway. Recently completed projects include the state-of-the-art School of Business, an €80 million environmentally friendly building on the main campus.

The University’s financial position improved significantly over the last five years due mainly to successful strategies for generating non-exchequer revenue. However, there are still major challenges in achieving the income required for a globally competitive research university. Significant additional funding will be required from the Government to address the shortfall in public funding per student which has reduced significantly in recent years and to meet anticipated growth in demographic and participation rates. Exchequer income has declined from 70% of the university’s total income in 2008 to 40% in 2018 and the financial outlook for the University will continue to remain uncertain unless the Government commits to long-term funding or lifts the cap on undergraduate student fees.

Notwithstanding these challenges, Trinity remains committed to the University’s mission to deliver research of international impact, and to a student experience underpinned by quality teaching and access to the best student services. We will continue to invest strategically in world class infrastructure and facilities to underpin our growth and drive future success and will retain the focus on our core strategy of growing non-exchequer income across four key areas – research income, global relations, commercial revenues, and philanthropic income. We will also continue to focus strongly on improving efficiency in our operations and support functions, and reducing operating costs, through investment in best-in-class IT systems and processes.

The University has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and in particular as a result of its reliance on non-exchequer sources of income, the pandemic has placed a significant portion of this income at risk. The 2020 financial year will be materially affected, with an adverse variance to budget driven mainly by the impact of COVID-19 on commercial income, research, philanthropy and operating costs. Continuing loss of commercial income and fewer enrolments of international students are expected in FY20/21. A significant financial deficit is therefore forecast in FY20/21 with key income categories impacted, along with increased costs incurred in the re-opening of campus and its safe operation in line with public health measures.

Further details are provided in Appendix 3.

2.2 Strategic Plan 2020 – 2025 Community and Connection*

The new Strategic Plan 2020 – 2025 defines the University’s goals for the next five years. Its title ‘Community and Connection’ reflects our conviction that, in an increasingly interdependent world, we need to work together in new ways to address the formidable challenges facing us.

The vision, articulated in this plan, is to be a globally connected community of learning, research, and scholarship, inspiring generations to meet the challenges of the future. We will achieve this by pursuing nine cross-cutting goals:

      • We will foster an ever more diverse and inclusive student community
      • We will support a transformative student experience
      • We will practice next-generation teaching and learning
      • We will stand up for research, its quality and impact
      • We will shape our organisation and focus research around the challenge of achieving a sustainable and healthy planet
      • We will enrich and expand our global network
      • We will develop and inhabit our space responsibly
      • We will be one Trinity community
      • We will secure the financial basis for our future development

With this plan we aim to consolidate achievements in areas such as participation and access, undergraduate curriculum reform, global relations and international student recruitment, research impact and the prioritisation of research themes tackling global challenges. Moreover, the plan responds to new challenges brought on by globalisation, rapid technological development and environmental change with major initiatives such as the E3 Institute in Engineering, Environment and Emerging Technologies; the development of an Innovation Campus at Grand Canal Dock; or the creation of the Trinity St James’s Cancer Institute. Over the duration of the plan we will instigate and implement far- reaching new strategies in areas such as digital learning, micro-credentialing, sustainability and inclusiveness. We will undertake a fundamental renewal of our graduate education and will increase the percentage of our postgraduate students to more than 30%. These goals and initiatives will strengthen Trinity’s mission as a research university and will consolidate its position as one of the world’s great universities.

2.4 College Governance

Trinity College is the sole constituent College of the University of Dublin, and for all practical intents and purposes they are one and the same.

The Board of Trinity College is the Governing Body and the ultimate decision-making authority of the College. It is chaired by the Provost and is composed of 16 elected staff members, four student members, two external members and a number of ex officio College Officers.

The University Council, which is also chaired by the Provost, controls the academic affairs of the University.

Both operate according to the requirements of the 1997 Universities Act, the 2000 Trinity College, Dublin (Charters and Letters Patent) Amendment Act, the 2010 Consolidated Statutes of Trinity College Dublin and of the University of Dublin and a sector-wide agreed Code of Governance.

The Senate of the University is responsible for the institution and the award of degrees. It is chaired by the Chancellor, Dr Mary McAleese. The role of Chancellor is largely a ceremonial one, but the Chancellor is also one of the two Visitors* of the University.

The Fellows of Trinity College are elected from among the academic staff on the basis of their academic distinction and their research achievements. There are currently 278 Fellows. Fellows play a major role in the general life and governance of the College. In particular, they have to grant their assent to any changes to the College’s Statutes.

*See: 2010 Consolidated Statutes, Chapter on Visitors, ‘1. (1) Pursuant to the Principal Enactments, the College and University have two Visitors: the Chancellor and the Judicial Visitor. (2) The Visitors shall be independent in the performance of their functions.
