The School of Māori and Pacific Development

University of Waikato, New Zealand

 Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao o Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato aims to uplift the people of Aotearoa and to be the leading school of excellence in the teaching and learning, research and development of Mātauranga Māori and indigenous knowledge, and to be the first choice school for Māori and Pacific students. Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao represents innovation and tradition in teaching and research, and it provides national and international leadership in Māori, Pacific and indigenous issues and sustainable development. Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao is distinctive in that it actively promotes Māori, Pacific and indigenous peoples cultural and development issues through its teachings, research, conferences and publications. Staff of Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao provide leadership and role modelling in teaching, research and administration, and the School offers a full range of academic opportunities from undergraduate to post-doctoral teaching and research.

 Te Puawānanga is a native flower that symbolizes Māori civilization from which its intellectual and educational philosophies and knowledge evolved. We exist within a university that reflects the wider intellectual world we live in. By knowing who we are and where we come from, we can acquire new knowledge with confidence to add to the accumulated wisdom of our ancestors.
