Carol Veiga, Graduate Attributes Coordinator

Today’s UCC Hero is Carol Veiga, Graduate Attributes Coordinator.

Carol was nominated by Eleanor Donoghue, Graduate Attributes Programme Manager. Here, Eleanor shares why Carol is so deserving of this acknowledgement.

"Carol has gone way above and beyond over the last few months - nothing has been seen as a challenge! 

Carol coordinated an entire UCC Virtual Reality Experience during lockdown, liaising with numerous staff university-wide, compiling thousands of emails, collating scripts into a narrative, checking and cross-checking historical information and fun facts, directing a two-week Virtual Reality video shoot compiled of almost 90 valuable sites, and guiding videographers on campus, even during weekends!

Thank you, Carol; your outstanding dedication and enthusiasm never dwindles!"
