NCAD+UCD - The Academic Alliance
Mr Bernard Hanratty, Acting Director of NCAD and Professor Andrew Deeks, President of UCD formally submitted the Report on The Academic Alliance to the Higher Education Authority on 24th June 2016.
The report, which was funded through the HEA under the Strategic Innovation and Development Fund and undertaken between October 2014 and October 2015, found ample evidence on a number of fronts of the current success and future potential of the Academic Alliance between the two institutions.
One of the recommendations of the Report is that the NCAD+UCD Strategic Management Committee establish two working groups to undertake further work on the recommendations of the joint report: (1) to consider the future of the academic collaboration and (2) to focus on academic accreditation.
