Associate Deans Māori
The Associate Deans Māori work with University leaders to normalise things Māori within the University and guide the implementation of the Māori Strategic Framework (MSF). They are appointed by and based within their respective academic divisions or schools.
There are about 70 Māori academics at Otago working across Otago's four Divisions:
- Te Kura Pakihi / Division of Commerce and School of Business
- Te Wāhanga Matua Mātau Hauora / Division of Health Sciences
- Te Kete Aronui / Division of Humanities
- Te Rohe a Ahikāroa / Division of Sciences
Presented here is a sample of existing Otago profiles of some of Otago's Māori academics. These profiles focus mostly on research interests. We hope over time to continue adding to these profiles so as to present a more complete presence of the many wonderful Māori academics who are working at the University of Otago.
