Education

Edward Walsh was a graduate of the National University of Ireland and received his doctorate at Iowa State University.

Tenure as President

Dr Walsh is credited with expanding the University of Limerick significantly from private sources at a time when government capital grants were scarce, using direct private donations and the creation of a university foundation. The University pioneered a form of weighted Grade Point Average in the Irish third-level context termed "Quality Credit Average". It also mandated participation in programmes such as cooperative education and overseas learning through European Union schemes such as the Erasmus programme.
