Growing Pearls of Wisdom - the student as the pearl

The relationships between the different components of the Growing Pearls of Wisdom: Pasifika@Massey 2020 strategy are depicted in the above diagram, which presents the strategy in Pacific conceptual style as a shell. The Pasifika student – ‘the precious pearl in the shell’ - is at the centre of this strategy. Pasifika values that emanate from Pasifika beliefs and ways of being, wrap around the student, providing a solid foundation that holds together all the subsequent layers of the shell.

The Six Strategic Goals outlined in The Road to 2020 (now Seven Strategic Goals in The Road to 2025) represent the outer layer of the shell. These provide a platform for Strategic Actions (second layer), which link the Massey’s Road to 2020 Goals and the five Pasifika@Massey 2020 Strategic Goals, the third layer of the shell.

From the student to the outer layers of the shell are five two-directional arrows representing the five Colleges of Massey University. Colleges play a fundamental role both in the educational achievement of Pasifika students at Massey and in contributing towards the achievement of the strategic goals in the Pasifika@Massey 2020. Other key internal service providers and external partners, stakeholders, and champions also have a responsibility to work collaboratively with the Pasifika Directorate so that Pasifika educational achievement is on a par with that of other Massey students.
