The University of Auckland has formalised a longstanding strategic partnership with the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa to strengthen ties across the Pacific.

This month, the University of Auckland formalised a strategic partnership with the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa centred on our close ties through the APRU network and APAIE, our long-standing student exchange and academic cooperation, and our strong research cooperation.

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is a research university of international standing with a heritage, people and location that create close links to the Asia Pacific region. Committed to being the leading indigenous serving university in the United States, UH Mānoa delivers a multicultural global experience, with a long history of adherence to the principles of sustainability and the essence of aloha.

The University of Hawai’i partnership with the University of Auckland is being led by our Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Creative Arts and Industries, and Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences with an early focus on language study, indigenous studies, urban and regional planning, and indigenous health.

Initial discussions have identified opportunities to leverage long-standing faculty and research connections and to expand our student mobility programmes. As a network partner through APRU our academic and professional staff members may apply to International Central Networks and Partnerships Grant (ICNPG) for mobility support.
