Chancellor welcomes NUI Galway and University of Limerick Strategic Alliance


UCC President Dr Michael Murphy and Minister Batt O'KeeffeThe NUI Chancellor Dr Maurice Manning welcomed the announcement of a strategic alliance between NUI Galway and the University of Limerick which will see the two universities harnessing their combined resources to achieve key strategic goal. Expressing support for the development, the Chancellor said that

‘the visionary plans and the practical implementation plans which these two universities have worked so energetically to develop are loaded with creative potential and should bring great benefits not only to the Galway and Limerick regions but to Ireland as a whole. This is the kind of thinking we need to get us out of our current economic morass. Fragmentation constitutes a serious weakness in the university sector: it is vital that this be addressed. Policy proposals currently being pursued at national level will result in increased fragmentation and should be vigorously opposed’.
