AIT and LIT's Executive Management Teams have formed a Joint Management Steering Group, and the Governing Bodies of both institutes have formed a Joint Governing Bodies Steering Group. These structures reflect interests across the spectrum of institutional life.
The Joint TU Project Team will develop and empower staff-led project teams to address specific work packages aimed at delivering the TU.
The AIT - LIT Consortium aims to develop a new unique university with a strengthened regional focus and a national and international outlook, that will benefit our students, staff and the communities we serve.
Prof Tom Collins is the facilitator for the AIT - LIT Consortium. He has an extensive background in higher education and most recently was chair of the governing body of DIT, IT Blanchardstown, and IT Tallaght during their merger into Technological University Dublin.
Presidents of AIT and LIT Prof Ciarán Ó Catháin and Prof Vincent Cunnane lead the AIT - LIT Consortium project team and the Joint Management Steering Group as project sponsors.
The Project Directors, Dr Niall Seery and Terry Twomey, will develop the project's goals and objectives as part of our application for TU designation.
