  • Kaiārahi Māori – in attendance as required.


Initial consultation, support and feedback is provided by the Kaiārahi to the colleges of the university. This is the substantial development phase.

The AAC will maintain a register of content, experiences and engagement (whether a course or paper, and/or content, and/or not-for-credit activities) which contributes to bicultural competence and confidence.
