Seats allocated for Tūwhitia! Tauira Success are now full, but for those who would still like to be involved, a live stream link will be made available.

Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, supported by the Tertiary Education Commission, is humbled to host the second annual Tūwhitia Symposium.

This year's theme, Tūwhitia! Tauira Success, highlights continuity and a whakapapa to the inaugural symposium in 2022 while connecting to the mission of Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, "Kia angitu te tauira | Tauira Success". 

Set over two days in Kirikiriroa Hamilton, 28-29 September, Tūwhitia! Tauira Success will bring together experts and practitioners from across Aotearoa and the world, who are committed to tauira success — the heart of our success as tertiary education organisations.

The aim of the symposium is to collectively develop a shared understanding of how Tertiary Education Organisations can achieve student success for underserved learners in Aotearoa New Zealand.
