Manukau Institute of Technology and Waikato Tainui have signed a formal covenant to work together in ways that enhance student opportunities.

MIT kaiarahi Maori Dr Wahineata Smith says today’s ceremony acknowledges the iwi as mana whenua.

About 14 percent of the polytechec’s students are Maori, with those of Waikato-Tainui descent being the second largest group after Ngapuhi.

"The main things we want to get out of this is that formal partnership but also to get some alignment with the visions and strategy that iwi Maori have for their uri and what's on offer at Manukau Institute of Technology," Dr Smith says.

Now the formal kawenata is in place, it will be up to individual faculty heads to identify opportunities and programmes.
