Graduation, events and news

Tēnā rā koutou e ngā tauira o Te Kunenga ki Pūrehuroa.  He karere tēnei hei whakamārama atu i ngā nekenekehanga o te wā i a tātou e whakarite nei mō ngā rā kei te tū mai.  Ko te mea nui i tēnei wā, ko te hauora o te tangata me te whānau, nā, koia anō te take o tēnei karere e tuku atu nei ki a koe, ki a koutou katoa.

In supporting the Government’s attempts to limit the spread of COVID-19, Massey University has taken the unprecedented step of cancelling all graduation ceremonies in April and May including our celebrations to honour Māori graduates. You will still become graduates from a date to be announced by the University Council, which means from that point forward, you will be able to proudly display and use your academic qualification. Full details can be found on the Graduation web pages.

We share your disappointment at this time in not being able to graduate in the usual way, but the change to the ceremony in no way reflects on your qualification, neither does it diminish the magnitude of your achievement. To that end we would like to continue our tradition of acknowledging  your success through our Māori@Massey Facebook pages. Please send us a photo so we can create a post that recognises your qualification. While many of you may be reticent to share your achievement publicly, we believe it is vital that Māori academic success is celebrated. Your achievement will serve to inspire others in your whānau, your iwi and community to step onto the springboard of higher education. Please ensure your photos are sent to Raewyn  - r.rasch@massey.ac.nz

We hope in the future we will be able to host our usual celebrations to honour our Māori Graduates and you will be informed if and when arrangements are made. In the meantime, we wish to congratulate you on your upcoming graduation and look forward to celebrating with you and your whānau. We also continue to ask that you take every step possible to protect your health and wellbeing in these challenging times. 

Kia tau tonu rā ngā manaakitanga ki tēnā, ki tēnā o tātou.
