Te Poari | Board of Directors
Te Kotahi Research Institute is led by Associate Professor Māui Hudson who works alongside both research and support staff. Te Kotahi is guided by a Board of Directors, and has a strong relationship with Te Rōpū Manukura (the kaitiaki of Te Tiriti o Waitangi for the University) and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Māori Office.
Board members are selected for their business acumen and breadth of experience in Te Ao Māori and Te Ao Hurihuri.
