Community-based research projects
We lead, collaborate, and support many community-based research projects. Projects are undertaken to support community development, inform social issues that may exist in communities, provide an evidence base for community development, and enhance the community for its citizens.
Work Integrated Learning
Over 200 of our programmes have community supported learning placements.
Volunteering Activities within Communities
Across all our campuses, large numbers of team members and students use their knowledge, skills, and competencies to support community initiatives and actions. They often raise much needed funds for local organisations such as the NW Simon Community, Focus Ireland, and Special Olympics Ireland.
Knowledge Transfer and Sharing Activities
These are embedded across all campuses. Knowledge sharing initiatives make an ongoing contribution to the economic, social, and cultural future of our society.
Examples of recent activities include Heritage Tourism and Social Value Creation, Inishowen Development Partnership, and Situational Health Needs Analysis.
