Founded in 2018, The Mincéirs Whiden Society aims to provide a safe and welcoming environment for Traveller students on campus. In addition, the society intents to build positive relationships as well as alliances between Traveller students, the student and staff body at NUI Galway.

The society aims to work towards increasing Traveller participation in third level education, while providing a safe and welcoming space on campus. At present, just 1% of the Travelling community hold a third level qualification. With just 9% of Traveller children completing the Leaving certificate compared to 86% of the settled population.
