Te Āhurutanga Māori Student Leadership Programme

The Te Āhurutanga Māori Student Leadership Programme was piloted in 2012 with the main objective to develop and nurture Māori students to become good leaders and 'global citizens of the world'.  Te Ao Māori, te reo me ōnā tikanga, whānau, hapu and iwi are distinctive features that provide the foundation and guidance for the programme.

The programme is the vision of Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith and is administered out of the Pro-Vice Chancellor Māori Office.  The programme allows students to gain learning and understanding beyond the classroom environment.  It is a space that fosters relationships; provides opportunities for professional development; encourages community engagement; invites kaikōrero and kaimahi to share experiences and knowledge; and helps to explore the complexities of being a young Māori in te ao hurihuri, this ever-changing world.
