Launch of College Connect Programme

Renehan hall, Maynooth University
College Connect is a HEA funded three-year PATH 3 (Programme for Access to Higher Education) project which aims to admit 400 additional students from specific target groups (e.g. Irish Travellers, one parent families, care experienced young people, people with disabilities, refugees, etc.,) who are under-represented in higher education.
Rosario Ryan, Simon Ahern and Hilary Hooks of the ALL Institute along with others of the MEND higher education cluster (Athlone Institute of Technology (AIT), Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT), Dublin City University (DCU), and Maynooth University (MU) put the proposal together.
"Our vision is a student population that reflects and respects the diversity of the community in our region.
Our mission is to change who goes to college by working together as education providers and communities. This new partnership will empower future students to make informed choices and fulfil their potential."
