Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Strategic Engagement)
“The University of Auckland is recognised worldwide as New Zealand’s leading and most internationally connected research university. Its international mission is central to its teaching and research, ensuring we provide a high quality education and produce graduates who are responsible global citizens.”
Professor Stuart McCutcheon, Vice-Chancellor, The University of Auckland
The University of Auckland’s international objectives are to actively engage in international partnerships which:
- Position Auckland as a leading research university
- Enable participation in innovative and collaborative projects
- Provide international overseas opportunities for students and staff, and
- Benchmark against international standards.
Led by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Strategic Engagement), Professor Jenny Dixon, the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Strategic Engagement) consults with both internal and external constituents to develop and implement The University of Auckland’s international strategy.
The Office serves as a facilitator to the development and growth of the University's international relations, and to initiatives and projects that underpin the University’s internationalisation strategy. The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Strategic Engagement) advises the Vice-Chancellor and senior administration on international direction, opportunities and risks of relevance to the University.
The University is the only New Zealand member of three top, research-led university networks: the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), Universitas 21 (U21), and the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN). It also benefits from a broad range of international partnerships with top institutions and other governmental bodies across Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America and the Pacific.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Strategic Engagement), in conjunction with the International Relations Team, seeks to deepen the University’s international collaboration and research and to strengthen the international recognition and awareness of The University of Auckland, through its network memberships and partnerships, through the activities of its international research institutes, and also through the promotion of various international opportunities for both students and staff.
