The Division of Science recognises the importance of Māori in science. We have a number of programmes designed to enhance that kaupapa.
We provide support for Māori in secondary schools (Science Wānanga, Hands-On at Otago, OUASSA), transition programmes for new students at Otago, support networks at Divisional level and in departments for existing students, and also support for researchers and teaching staff who wish to incorporate te Ao Māori in their teaching and research.
The University also provides On Campus Experience (OCE) scholarships for Māori students:
The Division has its own Māori students group - Te Rōpu Pūtaiao. To make contact with Te Rōpu Pūtaiao email firstname.lastname@example.org
