UCC Heroes: Anne Wallace, Student Recruitment and Liaison Officer, College of Business and Law

Anne Wallace has been nominated by Professor Ursula Kilkelly, Head of College. Below, we hear why Anne is so deserving of this acknowledgement.


“Since the COVID-19 restrictions were imposed Anne has worked tirelessly to support the College’s recruitment activity, providing highly effective leadership to ensure the co-ordination of activity and the sharing of information across the College and across the university. The result has been a streamlining of the College’s student recruitment activity and greater efficiencies in decision-making. 

Anne has continued to support our increasingly innovative student recruitment activity – through webinars, online engagement and promotion – and has taken on added responsibility for student entrepreneurship, including the Student Inc. programme. If that wasn’t enough, Anne has just successfully completed her BA in Counselling and Psychotherapy with honours!

For Anne’s initiative, flexibility, commitment and leadership, she is truly one of UCC’s Heroes!"
