MOU signed between Massey and Te Papa

Common interests such as creative and fine arts, sciences, history and the social sciences have seen Massey University sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Te Papa.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Jan Thomas and Te Papa chief executive Geraint Martin signed the document last week in recognition of a shared desire to make the most of the existing relationships and stimulate further collaborations.

Professor Thomas says there are opportunities for joint research, teaching, supervision and appointments as well as the potential to consider adjunct roles at Massey for Te Papa staff.

The museum’s recent appointment of a digital officer, at a time when Massey is progressing its own digital strategy, is further evidence of shared objectives between the two organisations.

In addition, the three-year contract between Te Papa Press and the now well-established Massey University Press is just ending its first full year of operation, with benefit to both organisations, Professor Thomas says.
