Prospective Māori students question if uni is a safe space

in wake of calls for review into racism at all universities

The fear and intimidation Waikato University professors have experienced when calling out racism has been putting prospective students off from going to university, the Māori Tertiary Student's Association has said.

Te Mana Ākonga, the Māori Tertiary Students' Association, are the latest group to send an open letter to the Minister of Education Chris Hipkins calling for a nationwide review into racism at all universities.

An open letter was also sent to Hipkins on 14 September calling for a national review to commence urgently, signed by 36 Māori professors across the country.

Te Mana Ākonga tumuaki takirua Mamaeroa Merito said it's been a difficult time for tauira (students).
