What people say
COMMENTS FROM OUR PARTNERS
'NUI Galway is committed to improving the performance of the University by bringing about change through innovation. I welcome the partnership with the Students' Union in delivering the EXPLORE initiative. It is a practical way for students and staff to put their ideas into action whilst shaping the campus of tomorrow.'
Vice President for Innovation and Performance, NUI Galway
'By initiating the EXPLORE programme, NUI Galway and the Students' Union have created a university that is investing in its students' capacity and future, is offering staff new ways of working and piloting new ideas, and is breaking down the barriers that exist within mainstream education. I encourage one and all to EXPLORE, as it's an adventure worth taking part in.'
President, NUI Galway Students' Union (2013/14)
'As EXPLORE celebrates its third anniversary the impact of the initiative continues to grow, as does interest from both students and staff here at NUI Galway. The ongoing success of former EXPLORE projects in a wide variety of areas is extremely encouraging.'
NUI Galway Students' Union (2014/2015)
'It is an excellent initiative. I enjoyed working with the student - I really like the fact that it was led by the student as opposed to the staff member. I like the short time frame we had to work with - helped get things done without taking up too much time over the course of the year.'
'The opportunities EXPLORE affords students is what I feel is the [best] part of the initiative. EXPLORE nurtures the imagination of students that dare to put their ideas out there and watch them grow.'
'It's been a blast working with everyone involved with the EXPLORE project.'
'I especially like the chance to take part in projects which would normally be outside the bounds of my course. It has also been fantastic to hear from others what a great impact my project had on them.'
