- Solid reputation.

Cons

- Media plan is weak, insufficient input from students.
- Posts remain unfilled forever, no clear timeline.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Force Tyndall to brand itself more strongly as UCC and diversify research areas if possible.
Restructure budgets at the top.
Reform Teaching and Learning as advised as a matter of priority.
Lobby hard with a single voice for an increase in the education budget.
