Trinity College Dublin launches Strategic Plan 2020-2025

Education Information

Trinity College Dublin has launched its Strategic Plan 2020 – 2025. The plan’s vision is of Trinity nurturing a globally connected community of learning, research, and scholarship, and inspiring generations to meet the challenges of the future. Over the next five years, Trinity’s core mission will involve: civic action, through teaching, research and public engagement; research pursued at the frontiers and intersections of disciplines; and education that challenges students to think independently, communicate effectively, act responsibly, and develop continuously. This will be achieved by fostering an effective, flexible organisation that values all members of Trinity’s community.

The launch was done by live stream to avoid bringing a large number of people together during the current outbreak of Covid-19. A physical launch for the college community, external visitors and the media was cancelled.

Key ambitious initiatives in Trinity’s plans include:

Hiring new academic staff in key areas

Reducing the student-to-staff ratio from 18:1 to 16:1

Expanding the Trinity Access Programme for students from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds

Boosting diversity by targeting 36% of students from outside Ireland by 2024

Raising postgraduate student numbers on campus above 30%, closer to comparable research universities across the world

Developing a comprehensive digital learning strategy

Building at least 600 more student accommodation units

Trinity will also undertake the following major projects:

A strategically vital €1bn project to create an Innovation District east of the main campus, designed to make Dublin one of the top innovation cities in the world

A major conservation project for the historic Old Library that will include a new Research Collections Study Centre to enhance access to its considerable treasures

A Cancer Centre for excellence in oncology, in partnership with St James’s Hospital

The completion of the E3 Learning Foundry (Engineering, Energy and Environment)

The most ambitious philanthropic campaign in Irish history, mobilising alumni and supporters to raise €400m to take the university to its next stage of development
