Te Wheke a Toi: The International Indigenous Centre for Critical Doctoral Studies
Te Wheke a Toi offers cultural and whānau-centred support to help potential and current Māori and Indigenous doctoral students succeed. It provides:
- opportunities to come together as Māori to write, kōrero, whanaungatanga and participate in workshops – for example, on how to complete a literature review
- access to presentations by Māori and Indigenous speakers
- whanaungatanga – like online hui every second Thursday night – to connect, share ideas, and make researching less isolating
- dedicated study space open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on the Manawatū campus, Geography Building room 1.11 for Māori students studying masterates and doctorates.
There are also opportunities to come together for writing wānanga and to share where we are in our doctoral journeys.
We welcome feedback on what information would be useful to you. For more information or to provide feedback please contact Dr Monica Koia.
