Enhancement Theme Symposium 2018
The first Enhancement Theme Symposium was held on Wednesday 31 October 2018, at Massey University's Pukeahu Campus in Wellington.
The Symposium provided an opportunity for members of university senior leadership teams, academics, professional staff and students, engaged with the topic of the theme - access, outcomes and opportunities for Māori students and for Pasifika students - to share and critique initiatives and approaches. Comprised of Plenary Sessions and Workshops, the Symposium focused on sharing experience, considering what could be achieved and exploring the impact of doing things differently.
Each university will utilise the experience and report from the Symposium as appropriate to their individual approaches and priorities in their own enhancement theme plans. It will also contribute to Te Kāhui Amokura and Komiti Pasifika workstreams as well as the Enhancement Theme objective of being “explicit and transparent about how NZ universities are working together to progress parity in access, outcomes and opportunities for Māori learners and for Pasifika learners”.
