Few institutions have played as significant a role in the building of a nation and the preservation of its heritage as University College Dublin. UCD is unique among Ireland’s universities in that it was borne out of a vision for higher education and a flourishing, successful Ireland.

UCD sought guidance on a large initiative to further solidify its standing as a leading research intensive institution. UCD wanted to raise funds for an iconic O’Brien Centre for Science, a signature building for the Sutherland School of Law, scholarships, professorial chairs, 21st century learning technology, and other facilities and special initiatives.

CCS provided on-site campaign counsel and management, focusing on the most urgent priorities of the Forming Global Minds campaign, and helping UCD to reach and exceed goals.

In 2012, CCS completed a feasibility and planning study for UCD College of Business, a top 30 ranked European Business School, with over 8,000 students and a 75,000 strong alumni network. Following the study, the College embarked on a transformative philanthropic campaign. Having successfully completed Phase I, CCS is developing the strategy, case and leadership for Phase II. 

In parallel, CCS is providing on-going guidance and support for the University’s next significant campaign.
