Massey University Enhancement Theme Forum Invitation, 26 November 2019

Every 7-8 years, New Zealand universities go through an external academic audit. For this next round, the Cycle Six Academic Audit, the process includes a theme common to all universities; an ‘enhancement theme’ which each university will focus on, in addition to the particular areas they select for the regular audit.

For the Cycle Six Academic Audit, the theme that the New Zealand universities have collectively agreed upon is ‘Access, outcomes and opportunities for Māori students and Pasifika students’.

The University has an Enhancement Theme Steering Group (ETSG) which has oversight of the activities within the University. The ETSG is co-chaired by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Māori, Distinguished Professor Hingangaroa Smith and the Provost, Professor Giselle Byrnes.

On behalf of the ETSG, we invite you to attend an Enhancement Theme Forum to be held here at Massey University on the 26th November in the Sir Geoffrey Peren Auditorium on the Palmerston North Campus. The purpose of this Forum is to share the good work being undertaken in this area across our University with an internal – staff and student - audience.

We are inviting each College to make a presentation on various initiatives underway in the Colleges as part of both the Enhancement Theme work and supported by the Maori Learner Success Plan and the Pasifika Learner Success Plan. There will also be two panels featuring Māori students and Pasifika students who will be talking about their experiences at Massey.

All staff are welcome and encouraged to attend.

To register for the Forum please contact Fiona Coote at AcademicAssurance@massey.ac.nz with your name and unit by Monday 18 November.
