UCOL Māori & Pasifika Student Support

 
'Whangaihia te hinengaro me te wairua’
 
NURTURING THE MIND AND SPIRIT
 
 
​Raukura is a specialist service that provides a general duty of pastoral care to Māori and Pasifika Ākonga across all UCOL and satellite campuses, including Manawatū, Horowhenua, Whanganui, Wairarapa, Tutaenui, Taumarunui and Turangi.
 
Our pastoral care offers holistic support that aligns Te Whare Tapa Wha* to all Ākonga. This covers physical safety, access to advice and support services, physical and mental health support, freedom from discrimination and racism, transition into tertiary study and the opportunity to take part in the decision making on support services.

 
Raukura’s priority focus is on supporting students learning journey in Certificate Level 3-4 and first year Bachelor courses, across  all UCOL faculties. Sometimes, course availability and EFT enrolments allow our services to be extended to include programmes outside this scope.
