Eke Panuku | UC Māori Orientation

This online event is a chance for new students and whānau to be welcomed to UC, meet with staff from Te Waka Pākākāno | Office of the Assistant Vice-Chancellor Māori, Pacific and Equity and find out more about the university and services for ākonga Māori (Māori students).

We would have loved to have met kanohi te kanohi, but we will have to wait until we return to the orange light setting.
