I acknowledge the work of all those before us who have demonstrated courageous leadership for Te Ao Māori. E mihi kau ana ki a rātou.
Our mission is to ensure that Māori ways of thinking, being and doing thrive at the University and we are well on this journey. Achieving this means the knowledge produced by us will positively contribute to whānau, community and iwi-led development. And flourishing Māori communities are central to a sustainable, thriving and socially-just Aotearoa New Zealand.
He kai kei aku ringa
The means to flourishing are in my hands.
