to ‘self-promote their interests’
Ngāi Tūāhuriri has expressed concern that Auckland University of Technology (AUT) did not build a relationship with the Canterbury hapū before announcing its plans to establish a satellite campus in Christchurch.
On Tuesday, AUT announced it would open a satellite campus for health sciences in the central city.
Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga upoko (head), Te Maire Tau, said Ngāi Tūāhuriri had received no correspondence from AUT and no relationship had been established before the announcement.
“There is no Treaty relationship between Ngāi Tūāhuriri and this tertiary provider, and there will not be one.”
