In the carrying out of these objectives, the Union shall aspire to embrace the values of accountability, democracy, efficiency, professionalism and transparency

The Union shall seek to promote participation in Clubs and Societies by members, and may choose to allocate such resources as the Student Council may deem necessary to the development of such activities, following advice from the Board of DITSU CLG.
The Union shall also seek to help students and to keep them informed of relevant goings in within DIT.
The Union shall seek to engage with students and listen to their requirements.

The objective of the Union is to represent and defend on behalf of all its members, on matters primarily relating to their education and welfare and to protect and further their rights as citizens, in accordance with law.
In order to achieve this objective the Union works in a number of strategic areas to ensure that the students voice is heard. Examples of this include continual input into the proposed Grangegorman development, research into the effect of increases in the cost of education on our students and the establishment and carrying out of key campaigns.
You can be sure that DIT Students’ Union is working hard to represent the student voice at many levels. You can find out more about what strategic developments are taking place in the Presidents’ Blog and Student Council Meeting minutes.
