Institutional Plan

St Mary’s University College faces the third decade of the twenty-first century with an Institutional Plan for 2020 - 2023, Strategy 21, which sets out an 'Agenda for Sustainability' in uncertain times. The University College's strategic future starts, however, from a strong foundation which owes its origin to the wisdom and commitment of the Dominican Sisters as well as the Diocese of Down and Connor. Now in its one-hundred-and-twentieth year, St Mary’s has attained a reputation, both at home and abroad, for the excellence of its professional and liberal arts degree programmes and the pastoral care it provides for students. It has a highly relevant Mission Statement for the 21st century, which is emphatic in its fidelity to the founding traditions. St Mary’s, with numerous other third-level Catholic institutions across the globe, continues the great challenge of conjoining reason and religious faith, knowledge and the probing of the ultimate mystery of existence, life and hope - explorations of vital importance today for the future of the human family.
