University of Canterbury Pasifika Strategy 2014 - 2018
UC Pasifika Strategy 2014-2018
With the current Pacific Plan 2010-2013 expiring at the end of 2013, the Vice Chancellor approved the development of a Pasifika Strategy earlier this year to replace the existing Pacific Plan. An advisory group was established in May to review the current Pacific Plan and develop it into a Pasifika Strategy.
The first draft Pasifika Strategy was presented to the Senior Management Team for feedback in August. It was fully endorsed by the Senior Management Team and approved to proceed to the University Council.
In September the Pasifika Strategy 2014-2018 was fully endorsed and approved by the University Council. To highlight this significant milestone a special celebration was held on Thursday 27 November to officially launch the Pasifika Strategy.
Pasifika Strategy Advisory Group
The Pasifika Strategy Advisory Group, established in May this year and chaired by the Director of Pacific Development to review the current Pacific Plan and develop it into a Pasifika Strategy, meets every 3-4 weeks. The strategy group is made up of representatives from each College, community representatives, Pacific staff and strategic planning staff.
Pauline Luafutu-Simpson is the Acting Director of Pasifika.
