Inside this issue of UniNews: Melinda Webber, Nikki Chamberlain, Anna Hood, tribute to Queen Elizabeth II.
Professor Melinda Webber says negative stories about Māori tūpuna have had a serious impact. She is helping counteract that by showcasing their inspiring lives in a book.
After practising as a lawyer, it took a return to study to rekindle Nikki Chamberlain’s love of the law.
Opinion: With a rise in risk that nuclear weapons might be deployed, Dr Anna Hood says it is frustrating to see mere lip service paid to disarmament.
