Key Academic Initiatives

Under the leadership of the VPAA, DCU has committed to a number of projects that will transform how we interact with students and staff.  This includes a significant Student Information System (SIS) Project, which will ensure our future needs are met through a flexible and robust student system and DCU Futures, a radical re-imagination of the curriculum which will transform how our students learn.
