✅ More About Dublin City University
Dublin City University is a university in Dublin, Ireland, located on the northside of the city. It was founded in 1975 as the National Institute for Higher Education, Dublin, and began enrolling students in 1980. In September 1989, it was upgraded to university status (together with the NIHE Limerick, now the University of Limerick) by statute.
The Church of Ireland College of Education, All Hallows College, Mater Dei Institute of Education, and St Patrick’s College were all merged into DCU in September 2016.
The institution will have 17,400 students and nearly 80,000 alumni by 2020. DCU Connected, the university’s online distance education programme, has roughly 1,200 students enrolled. In 2019, there were 1,690 employees. Former Taoiseach John Bruton and “thinking” Guru Edward De Bono are among the academic staff’s notable members. Early in 2004, Bruton accepted an Adjunct Faculty Member post in the School of Law and Government, and in mid-2005, De Bono accepted an adjunct Professorship at the university.
Dr. Danny O’Hare, the institution’s first president, retired in 1999 after 22 years of service. Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski was appointed and served as president for a full ten-year term, which concluded in July 2010. He succeeded an acting president, Professor Albert Pratt. Professor Brian MacCraith was the next to be appointed, and he was succeeded in 2020 by Professor Daire Keogh, the current president.
