The MDCCE on the DCU St. Patrick’s Campus continues the mission and tradition of service to Catholic Education, broadly conceived, of the two Catholic Colleges of Education, St.Patrick’s College Drumcondra and Mater Dei Institute of Education that have been incorporated into Dublin City University (Oct 2016).
Within the DCU Institute of Education, the MDCCE seeks to ensure that teachers and other educators, graduating from DCU programmes, will have a deep appreciation of the Catholic understanding of the full development of the human person which informs every aspect of work in a Catholic setting.
