Young Alumni Ambassadors Group

The UCD School of Veterinary Medicine launched a new initiative for our Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Nursing alumni in 2023 - the Young Alumni Ambassadors Group (YAAG). 

The YAAG was established following discussions with current students and recent graduates around how the School can engage with and support new graduates in the years after they leave UCD.  The YAAG will help to foster interaction and communication between the School and its recent graduates through establishing a shared sense of community - cultivating and encouraging a continuing affiliation among young alumni and the institution.

The Group will promote and support the School’s programmes and activities through outreach and engagement with recent graduates and the wider UCD Veterinary Community, including current and prospective students.  The work of the Group will support the School’s mission to be an inclusive community, delivering excellence in education, research and clinical endeavour. 

The School hopes that through the YAAG, it can tap into constructive feedback from recent graduates, and that the Group will act as a peer-to-peer network through which alumni can be assured feedback and suggestions are brought to the attention of the School.  It will also serve as a sounding board for new ideas and will support ongoing efforts to improve academic, social and career experiences and create continued engagement opportunities for all members of our community.
