Diversity

AUT is a vibrant and diverse university that recognises that success is not defined by gender, gender identity, socio-economic backgrounds, ethnicity or disability. We are committed to building a safe, positive, and inclusive higher learning environment characterised by the free exchange of diverse ideas, skills and cultural perspectives.

AUT was the first New Zealand university to appoint a Professor of Diversity.

Diversity Roadmap

The roadmap aims to provide a framework to enable AUT to meet its strategic objectives as set out in the AUT Directions (strategic plan) and consistent with its legal and Treaty obligations.

Diversity Strategy and Action Plan

The strategy and action plan represent AUT's commitment to building the competencies and skills of staff and students through an inclusive work and study environment. It recognises that diversity in all branches of AUT's activity will enable staff and students alike to fulfil their potential and that of the University.
