This groundbreaking research will examine how to uncover hidden voices in our schools. The schools, as research hubs, will work as a community of practice within the DCU CSN.

The DCU CSN is also one of a small number of research projects chosen by Rethink Ireland to work with NUIG to evidence demonstrate the impact of the work of the DCU CSN and schools. This research will be available soon and we are looking forward to sharing it with you all.
