Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has said our universities are important drivers of economic and social change.

The Party's Further and Higher Education Spokesperson said:"The report by London Economics which outlines the contribution of Queens University to the economy once again highlights the important role our of universities as education providers and economic drivers."It is important that our universities, colleges, business community and government work together collaboratively to maximise and deliver on our economic potential."However, our universities have a role and responsibility not only economically but also socially in tackling inequalities and widening participation so that education and training pathways and opportunities are accessible to all."
