Community Partnerships

The University of Canterbury values its relationship with the community – both locally and nationwide. We are inspired by the Ngāi Tahu whakataukī: mō tātou, ā, mō ngā uri ā muri ake nei – for us and our children after us. We are proud to sponsor a range of community our focused initiatives, including our key partnerships with the Student Volunteer Army, the Crusaders and the Young New Zealander of the Year Award - Te Mātātahi o te Tau. We stand with our community in times of need, mobilising our networks to provide solutions, resources and simple kindness.
