Rūnanga provides a forum for discussion about Māori life on campus while bringing a Māori perspective to the day-to-day role of the University. This includes developing a positive Māori profile within and about the University, and helping develop Māori programmes in liaison with the Vice-Chancellor, Māori staff, students and the community.

Rūnanga advises the University Council on:

  • our aspirations to partner with Māori and support Māori development
  • progress and achievements of our strategic objectives for Māori
  • academic matters that are directly relevant to Māori curriculum content, delivery and research.

It also advises University management on operational matters relevant to the delivery on strategic objectives for Māori.
