SIT MAORI TERTIARY EDUCATION STRATEGY
SIT and the Maori community have enjoyed a strong relationship for many years, and have now worked together to develop a formal SIT strategy.
The main purpose of this strategy is to improve educational outcomes for Maori at SIT by ensuring that our Maori students are well prepared for further study, employment or self-employment upon their graduation.
It offers the opportunity to build on the success of existing strategies, while integrating new ideas and practices which will provide a direction for SIT in the future.
MAORI STUDENT LIAISON
James Wilkinson is SIT's Maori Student Liaison. He is on hand to assist Maori students with course advice and study issues, help students get in touch with the local cultural communities and organise cultural events.
He can also assist if students are interested in the Te Awa Rau - Maori Student mentoring program.
