Academic leaders of Mānoa and Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand have signed a memorandum of understanding and a student/staff exchange agreement, signifying a commitment by the two institutions to promote collaborative research and cooperation. AUT is Mānoa’s fifth partner university in New Zealand.

Mānoa International Exchange provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to study overseas, while allowing students from overseas partner universities like AUT to study at the Mānoa campus. An exchange may be for one or two semesters.

In addition to student exchanges, AUT’s work in indigenous studies through Te Ara Poutama (Māori Development) will provide valuable research opportunities for Mānoa faculty and students.

“Our goal at UH Mānoa is to provide a multicultural global experience in a Hawaiian place of learning, so international partnerships, like this new exciting relationship with Auckland University of Technology, are highly valuable in enhancing our campus’ global perspective and connections,” says Hinshaw. “New Zealand and Hawaiʻi have long been connected and we have learned so much by working together, so we look forward to many years of productive exchange with the Auckland University of Technology.”
