Diversity in Higher Education
This volume focuses on the past, current and future success of Maori and Pasifika peoples in tertiary education within Aotearoa New Zealand. Diverse issues are canvassed, from the countries colonial history, to Maori and Pasifika identity, student support initiatives, special populations, pedagogy and mentoring, the experiences of mature students, to student engagement with new technologies. The book represents the struggle of Maori people to claim space within the academy and how successful claims are now reaping rewards. The volume will inform an international audience about local initiatives, including the responsiveness of 'mainstream' tertiary provider organisations (e.g. universities) to Maori and Pasifika higher education aspirations, responses to higher education provision, and, the reclaiming of traditional higher education spaces by Maori.
