Leadership Through Learning

Nau mai, haere mai ki tēnei karaehe, ko Leadership Through Learning!

Leadership Through Learning is a free leadership and development program for our Māori and Pacific students at the University of Auckland, across all levels of studies, faculties, disciplines and campuses. The program offers a cultural space, where we build a community of student leaders seeking to "Lead, Empower and Transform."

In this space we acknowledge our ancestors were incredible voyagers, wayfinding on the moana to find new lands. While today we don’t sail on the waka haurua, we have new waters to navigate. In Leadership Through Learning, we work on soft skills to navigate the modern world, finding the way to our ideal life.

Program Details

Leadership Through Learning runs as a 12-week program available to students in Semester One and Semester Two. It includes 1-hour sessions with your cohort, a full day Wānanga in mid semester break, wrapping up with a vision board presentation and graduation of the program.
