As we publish this year's annual report, I feel immense pride as I look back on this period of renewal and reemergence, we've undertaken this year. This annual report is a testament to our collective resilience and commitment which form an integral part of the culture here at Marino.

Our students’ commitment was most evident in the fact that MIE had the highest level of student engagement with StudentSurvey.ie across the higher education landscape in 2022-2023. Our international reach has expanded, with students from 30 countries enriching our Trinity International Foundation Programme. We've also had the pleasure of hosting the Edmund Rice Education Beyond Borders Global Congress, demonstrating to our commitment to global education and collaboration.

Sustainability remains at the forefront of our priorities, with the Green Campus Committee leading us towards a more eco-conscious future. We're making strides by developing opportunities for integrating sustainable approaches in all our work and within our curriculum.

Our Research Office expanded with the appointment of a new Research Officer and the provision of academic writing workshops for staff. The Research Strategy was approved and will contribute to fostering the growth and development of focused research hubs in the future as well as ensuring ongoing collaborative research and future projects.

MIE continually demonstrates its commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in many ways. The DICE project offered regular opportunities for students and staff to engage in programmes, conferences, workshops, and arts activities during the year.

The Migrant Teacher Project (MTP) continued to support internationally educated teachers entering the workforce in Ireland. At a time of a shortage of teachers nationally, the contribution of these international teachers is even more important. We were delighted to offer a tailored bridging programme to help recently arrived Ukrainian teachers access Irish schools. Minister Norma Foley TD attended the MTP graduation in June, celebrating the contribution of these international teachers to Irish schools.

We were particularly pleased to be successful in the tender to continue to provide the Baitsiléar san Oideachas (Irish medium BEd programme), ensuring that MIE will continue to offer the only qualification in the state for primary level teachers through the medium of Irish for primary level teachers until 2028-2032.

Our collaboration with schools and educational settings in Dublin, across the country, in Gaeltacht areas, and in the European School Network, to provide placement opportunities for our students has grown throughout the year. We thank the teachers and the school communities in all these regions who provide tremendous support to our students and foster knowledge sharing.

Our students continued to flourish in the areas of arts and music. The Drama Society produced the musical ‘All Shook Up’ in February, our traditional music society presented the RTE Seachtain na Gaeilge Céilí House radio programme and the Winter Fest music performance, in addition to the Summersong concert showcased new music by MIE artist in residence Colm Ó Foghlú and featured many talented musicians including members of the MIE Drama Society accompanied by The Charlemont String Ensemble.

On the sports fields our students, alumni and staff represented the college across a range of sports, and it was wonderful to see the establishment of new men’s and women’s soccer and basketball teams during the last year.

Since its establishment almost 120 years ago, MIE has grown and evolved, and this report demonstrates the nature of the Institute’s recent accomplishments, while continually facing new and diverse challenges.

Each day, our staff continue to ensure that students are fully engaged in their academic work, while they support their participation in all the cultural and sporting activities. I wish to thank each member of staff for their unstinting commitment and generosity of spirit.

I am very proud of the achievements of the staff and students and look forward with optimism to a strong future for MIE. As we continue to move forward into the future, I wish to thank each member of staff for their resilience, hard work, and dedication I see in all facets of the Marino community.

Cuireann na himeachtaí go léir leis an atmaisféar dearfach atá le brath ar an gcampas. Gabhaim buíochas ó chroí le pobal Marino as ucht gach ní atá bainte amach againn le linn na bliana. 

Go mba fada buan sinn.
