Faculty of Education and Social Work


Equity at the faculty

We are committed to developing and monitoring strategies, policies and procedures that enable the faculty to fulfil its commitment to equal opportunities in education and employment.

Equity means fairness and justice within a safe and inclusive study and work environment that enables talented people to achieve their potential. Our equity initiatives, policies and programmes aim to meaningfully support our Māori students and staff, and our equity group students and staff. These people are:

  • Pacific students and staff
  • Students and staff with disabilities
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex students and staff
  • Students and staff from refugee backgrounds
  • Students from low socio-economic backgrounds
  • People who experience barriers to access and success

The Faculty’s Equity Committee members represent our diverse staff and students. Our leadership and work assist the faculty to achieve its goal of advancing the experience of success for all staff and students.
