This included, the ability, to move all teaching. And your final, assessments, online. Something, that would have been almost unthinkable. Until, it had to be, done. But it also included, additional, student, supports. A major increase, in the student, assistance, fund. Extra funding, for mental health, and for students, with disabilities. It was perhaps, fortuitous. That the government, had established. The new dedicated. Department, of further, higher education. Research, innovation, and science. Earlier this year under minister, simon harris. This allowed, 168. Million to be euros to be distributed, in our sector. To help maintain your education. And the education, of those who come after you, by providing. Those supports. And we got a generous, portion, of that sum of money. Your experience, is the heart of what we do, and it is what we will always do. No matter the circumstances. This will remain true as we move towards our, technological. University. Status. Which is. Very, close at hand, which will strengthen, the benefits, we we can bring to students, their families, and to their communities. Today, is as i said before a red letter day for you and your families.

With this mission, of educating, everyone, who would benefit from that education. Regardless. Of background. We have held on to that tradition. Through generations. Of staff, and students. It is something that you should all hold on to. Should all be proud of. But this, is also a very emotional, time, for lit, as well. You the graduates, of 2020. Are the last. To graduate. From lit. Because we expect to become a technological, university. From next year. This current iteration, of our heritage. Limerick institute, of technology. Will, cease, to be.

To support, students, on their very, journeys. To offer higher education. To all who would benefit from it, at every. Level. To applied, learning, and applied research. All of these things are imprinted, on our psyche. Now. And. Will be, into the future. The new tu will be built on the shoulders. Of those who have gone before us. In our tradition. We know our spirit. And that spirit. Is yours. Now. It is what has enabled, our staff and students. To bring us into a new era. By meeting the stringent, standards, required. Of a technological. University. And already. We have taken a lead role. In the formation. Of run eu. The regional, university, network. A federation. Of like-minded. Applied.
Universities. In regions, across europe. Dedicated. Like us, to bring in opportunity. To the people, of their heartlands. Whatever the new tu is called. At its heart. Is that heritage. And remember that you. The last, graduates, of lit. Will also, be part, of this new institution. It will still be, your. Institution. All of this is for the future. But as mahatma, gandhi said. The future, depends. On what we do in the present. And your present, now, is about your achievement. Your hard work. Your perseverance. Your talent. And your resilience. Congratulations.
