Prof Daire Keogh

I am proud to lead Dublin City University on the next phase of its remarkable journey. DCU is a beacon of excellence in research, innovation, engagement, and opportunity. Now with more than 18,000 students, we are recognised for providing life-changing educational opportunities, backed by world class expertise in teaching and learning.  


Our mission to ‘transform lives and societies’ is reflected in DCU’s many initiatives to broaden access to higher education, and in our impactful research addressing the challenges facing our world today. Dublin City University consistently ranks in both the QS and Times Higher Education Top 100 under 50 World University Rankings.
