To Pacific parents and students most especially, from the greater South Pacific region, welcome to the University of Otago.
The University of Otago is strongly committed to Pacific student achievement and meeting the needs of Pacific peoples as illustrated in the University of Otago Pacific Strategic Framework 2022–2030.
The launch of the Pacific Strategic Framework by the University in July 2013 was a landmark occasion for our University. The Pacific Strategic Framework signals our intentions to be the best University in supporting all of our students to succeed in their tertiary education journey.
We have very dedicated staff both within our Academic Divisions and our Service Divisions, who are absolutely devoted to supporting Pacific students through University study. We look forward to working together and offering you the support required in achieving Pacific academic excellence.
Ia soifua ma ia manuia – be well and prosper.
Dr Tasileta Teevale
Director, Pacific Development
