Ladies & Gentlemen,
Welcome to Dundalk Institute of Technology. My name is Glenn McCourt and I am your student president for the coming year. I have been a student at DkIT for the past four years. I have had an incredible four year stay in DkIT thus far and I am delighted to be your SU President for the year ahead. College is the best years of your life and it is over in an instant so enjoy every second. College is firstly about education but followed very closely by entertainment and nightlife so be sure to make the most of what college has to offer. By following the DkIT Students’ Union on social media outlets you will be kept up to date with what entertainment we have planned throughout the year ahead.
One bit of advice I would strongly recommend for you the students is to get involved in campus life as much as possible! Becoming a class rep or joining a club or society is a good way of getting involved and also lets you see all of what DkIT has to offer. It is what will fundamentally make your college experience an enjoyable one.
My role as President
My role as president is a strategic one whereby I oversee the overall management of the Students’ Union to make sure we are all working towards improving your quality of life here as a DkIT student. One of my main roles is to represent you the students at Institute level and also on a national level.
So what do I mean by representation at an Institute-wide level?
Every decision that is made within the institute, from hiring a new member of staff to changing exam regulations, is done so by a committee which ultimately reports into the Governing Body of the Institute. The Students’ Union is in the unique position that it contributes to the strategic decision-making process within the institute by sitting on a number of committees. As the President of the Students’ Union I hold a seat on all of these committees. These include: The Governing Body, Academic Council, Student Services company, The Finance Committee, Strategic Development Committee to name a few. On all of these boards I fight for the rights of the students to ensure they are represented to so they have the best possible conditions.
I hope DkIT is as good to you as it has been to me and best of luck for the year ahead!
