To all of our students, parents and families from across Aotearoa and our Pacific nations, welcome to the University of Otago.

We are blessed with many Pacific leaders, teams, communities and programmes that are dedicated to our students' success. Our aspirations include success in their studies and as members of their communities and emerging leaders of the future.

Here at the Pacific Development Office we monitor and support the 'big picture' Pacific aspirations at our University village. These are described in our Pacific Strategic Framework. This framework is endorsed at the highest levels of the University of Otago and outlines our aspirations for leadership, academic excellence, research, external engagement and operational success through to 2030.
