Partnering with the University College Dublin

Challenge

University College Dublin (UCD), sought guidance on a major initiative to further solidify its standing as a leading research-intensive institution, including several landmark capital projects, additional funds for scholarships, professorial chairs, 21st century learning technology, infrastructure, and special initiatives.

Solution

CCS assisted UCD with campaign planning and provided on-site campaign direction and counsel for several of the University’s major campaigns, including The Campaign for Science and The Campaign for Business.

In addition, CCS has been working with the University since early 2016 to prepare for the next UCD-wide comprehensive campaign, and is assisting UCD with the development of the case for support and the recruitment of campaign leadership.

Impact

The successful completion of the recent campaigns has established new benchmarks for philanthropy at UCD, and has resulted in many benefits beyond financial, including stronger links with the business and wider community, a more engaged alumni body, and an increased reputation for thought leadership and research excellence.
