Graduation Ceremony of Dept of Applied Social Studies Level 7 Certificate Course 'Community Work in a Changing Ireland'
Maynooth University conferred 24 men and women from Traveller and Roma communities across Ireland as graduates of the Certificate programme. Speaking at the ceremony, Anastasia Crickley commented: “In a context where fewer than 13% of Travellers complete second level education, and only 1% or fewer go on to gain third level degrees, this is a significant achievement for the students involved. It is also a significant marker of Maynooth University’s continued commitment to access to education for Travellers, members of the Roma community and other marginalised groups”.
