AIT Students’ Union represents over 6’000 students of Athlone Institute of Technology with a multitude of nationalities, ethnic minorities and diverse backgrounds. AIT Students Union aims to create, promote and develop the inclusive environment of AIT with the objective of students being educated to maximum fulfillment without bias or prejudice in line with our Institute’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.

Your Students’ Union has adopted newly named and formed roles to help further better and develop EDI throughout our Institute with a Vice- President for Welfare and Equality, an Ethnic Minorities officer, a disability officer as well as many other officers.

AIT Students’ Union have explored many areas over the years and developed multiple ways to promote and develop EDI in AIT. From promoting active citizenship and giving out each student the choice to vote to the development of clubs and societies which include a broad range of diverse and inclusive societies, equality weeks such as L.G.B.T.Q+ week, Diversity week, Ethnic minorities week and many more new weeks being developed, AIT Students’ Union strive to continually develop our campus to its full potential in relation to Equality, Inclusion and Diversity.
