Care & Connect

Float an idea - We are listening and we are doing

Over three thousand responses were received when we launched the DCU Healthy Minds Survey in February 2022. This gave us huge momentum to accelerate our Health and Wellbeing work under Care and Connect. We have four subgroups and over 60 staff across the institution and the SU working together to enhance your student experience.

If you have a good idea that will improve the mental or physical health of the student body, don't keep it to yourself!  We will be giving seed funding for projects over the next three years as part of Care & Connect. You might want to organise a weekly event, introduce a new activity - anything at all that could improve the university environment for our students.

We will be funding 4 projects up to the value of €500 per project. Simply complete the application form by 10th  November 2023. All successful applicants will be notified by 24th November 2023.
