Role of the Office of Pacific Advancement

Key on the Office of Pacific Advancement’s agenda is to enhance AUT’s reputation as a major provider of tertiary education and Pacific-relevant research that will support our Pacific leaders’ vision for “a region of peace, harmony, security and economic prosperity, so that all of its people can lead free and worthwhile lives” (Auckland Declaration, April 2004).

Our staff and alumni are empowered to assume positions of responsibility and leadership and to make extraordinary contributions to that vision.

The Office of Pacific Advancement also provides strategic oversight on matters concerning AUT’s Pacific students, staff and communities in New Zealand and around the Pacific. It supports proactive engagement with internal and external stakeholders to implement Pacific-focused initiatives and strategies as they relate to the objectives laid out in AUT’s Strategic Plan 2012-2016.
