Pacific staff

We are New Zealand’s leading university for the numbers of Pacific students, graduates, staff and research publications.

This relationship is based on equity, on the Charter, and on the geographical, historical and political ties between New Zealand and Pacific nations.

The University‚Äôs Fale Pasifika is a traditional Pacific Island meeting house offering facilities for Pacific research, teaching and student services, while the Pasifika Staff Network provides the Director
of Pacific Strategy and Engagement and the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Equity) with advice on issues relating to Pacific staff.
