The University of Waikato/Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato plays an essential leadership role in the prosperity of our region and our country.
Though we are heirs to standards, values and traditions that have evolved over centuries, we are not limited by the past. Our gaze is firmly on the present and future needs of this nation.
We are an Aotearoa/New Zealand institution that looks at the world from an Aotearoa/New Zealand perspective.
We sit at the heart of a community of strong regional partnerships and take pride in the extent to which we reflect and serve the strengths and interests of our region. We embody the spirit of our region—of Waikato.
We are also an international university. We consciously measure our performance against internationally established criteria, and our teachers, researchers and students inspire, and are inspired by, an international community of scholars.
We are committed to the recruitment and retention of world-class staff who excel at teaching, research and management in areas that are of particular strategic value to Aotearoa/New Zealand.
