The global UCD community of alumni, students, staff and the wider public are invited to enjoy the ‘UCD Alumni Awardees In Focus’ conversation series which will be hosted by UCD alumnus and long time friend of the UCD Alumni Awards Pat Kenny. The virtual event will on Thursday, 18 November at 7:00 pm. Award winners will talk about their work, current issues, looking to the future and will reflect on UCD's strategic theme of 'Creating a Sustainable Global Society'. The event is kindly supported by RKD.

With almost 300,000 former students based in 185 countries around the world, UCD’s Alumni network is as vast as it is impressive. Our graduates are the standard-bearers of UCD’s reputation and it is in large part due to them that the value of each of the University’s degree and masters courses continues to be enhanced. Their loyal and passionate support is helping to shape the future of Ireland’s leading global University.

The UCD Alumni Awards were introduced in 2014 to acknowledge that invaluable support and to honour the outstanding achievement by our former students in a wide variety of fields and disciplines.
