MAI ki Waikato seeks to develop and nurture a diverse community of Māori and Indigenous scholars across all disciplines. MAI ki Waikato offers a stimulating and nurturing environment for both enrolled and prospective Māori And Indigenous doctoral students from any tertiary institution. We seek to provide vital opportunities for students to network with like-minded people across disciplines. The central values that MAI ki Waikato embrace are panekiritanga (academic excellence), whanaungatanga and manaakitanga.
Specifically the MAI ki Waikato programme provides:
• Opportunities to engage with the wider Māori academic community
• Skill based workshops (reading, presenting, methodologies etc.)
• Writing retreats and workshops
• Inspirational speakers
• Mentors and MAI alumni
• Engagement with students in the greater MAI network
• Opportunities to present at MAI National Conferences
This blended online symposium is an opportunity to strengthen connections within your MAI site whānau and, together, to consider the wider impact and reach of our collective research to grow, nurture and support Indigenous research relations.
In mid November, 87 Māori doctoral students from a broad range of disciplines came together from all over Aotearoa, along with some international Indigenous PhD students, to share their research in a Māori supported way.
