    In September 2016, Maynooth University appointed a Mathematics Support Centre (MSC) University Tutor on a three-year contract, a unique position for an institution on the island of Ireland. In this paper, we briefly explore the important role of MSCs and their tutors. We describe the University Tutor’s activities for the 2016-17 academic year and we discuss the benefits of establishing such a position. We also advocate for the establishment of more contract positions.
