21 Day Challenge

The 21 Day Pacific Challenge brings teams of students from across the university together to solve a problem in a Pacific nation.

The challenge is a competition like no other, providing students with the opportunity to make a real impact on international communities in need.

Participants are selected by academic advisors and placed into teams. Students are allocated to a team based on their studies to ensure that each team has a diverse pool of knowledge and represents each of the five colleges.

2016 - Niue

In 2016 the challenge focused on Niue with students developing plans to assist the Niuean community to conserve, protect and sustainably manage its food supply in a way that can be self-sufficient.

A range of mentors from academic, cultural, business and alumni guided the participants.
