Our focus on our local communities is balanced by our commitment to a culture of internationalisation, which is measured through the diversity of our student and staff profiles, the support and celebration of that diversity, a long-standing pride in our reputation for the pastoral care of our international students, and the measures we take through curriculum, programme design and global networks and connections to expose our students to international influences.
We are committed to the proactive management and stewardship of our resources and assets, through robust planning, strong quality management processes, effective risk identification and consistent performance monitoring and assessment.
Through an organisational culture that is characterised by strong leadership and through effective and harmonious arrangements for governance and management, we ensure proper standards of integrity, conduct and concern for the public interest.
Through the provision of a beautiful and safe campus environment, a culture of optimism, passion for learning, mutual respect, inclusiveness, and fair and equitable work-sharing and rewards, we strive to provide all our staff with opportunities for challenging and professionally rewarding careers.
We will constantly expand our modes of teaching and our links and connections with regional, national and global networks in order to provide varied and flexible learning pathways and support the increasingly diverse learning needs of our students. Our approach to learning is focussed on learning outcomes that enable students to be critical, productive and ethical citizens. We aim to inspire them with Aotearoa - New Zealand understandings of our connected world.
