He Kete Korero - 2017 Winter full front page
Welcome to the winter 2017 edition of He Kete Kōrero which highlights just some of our recent work.

This issue discusses our strategic direction document which we have been developing and putting in place. Divided into four themes, we have developed strategic action plans for:

  • Teaching and Learning – to achieve excellence in student learning
  • Excellence in Research
  • Māori – to honour our obligations under the Treaty of Waitangi and attract, recruit and retain Māori staff and students and educate in Māori health needs and provide appropriate clinical experience
  • Pacific – to honour our commitment to the University’s Pacific Strategic Framework, and to improve Pacific achievement and development.

The plans come under the umbrella of the overall University of Otago and Division of Health Sciences strategic frameworks, but also have specific, measurable and sustainable goals fit for the Wellington campus. We look forward to working towards goals such as enhanced community engagement, even greater research excellence, and promoting growth and development.

Highlights coming up: Next month we celebrate the official opening of the Centre for Translational Physiology, a unique facility for New Zealand that will enhance our biomedical research.

We invite you to attend Professor Sue Pullon’s Inaugural Professorial Lecture on 1 August. rsvp.uow@otago.ac.nz by 27 July.
