seek to lay Treaty claim
Six academics, who have sought the protection of a whistleblowers Act (the Protected Disclosures Act), penned a 13-page letter to the Ministry of Education alerting them of the issues.
The letter alleged “structural and ‘casual racism’” within the university.
Other allegations also included lower pay for Māori staff, the constructive dismissal of talent across the university and no indigenous advancement plan.
The university refuted all allegations.
