“Collaborating for Māori success”.
Te Tapuae o Rehua, is a unique partnership forged between Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, Lincoln University, Otago Polytechnic, the University of Canterbury and the University of Otago. This partnership is committed to increasing the numbers of Ngāi Tahu, and Māori katoa, participating and achieving within the tertiary sector within Ngāi Tahu’s tribal territory.
The core purpose of Te Tapuae is the active pursuit of Ngāi Tahu aspirations through collaboration with our tertiary partners. We ensure that collaboration is real, communication is constant and change is driven by Ngāi Tahu values and aspirations.
