Ko nga tohutohu mai i nga matekitenga me nga ahuatanga mo nga kaitiaki o Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi, kia mau pumau tonu ki a tatou tauira me nga kaimahi o te whare wananga.

E whakaaea ana nga tauira me nga kaimahi ki te whaiwhakaaro ki te ao Matauranga Maori me o tatou hapori matauranga, nga marae, me nga hoa pakihi.

Kaitiakitanga acknowledges in the first instance the unique obligations and responsibilities that Ngati Awa have as kaitiaki of Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi.

It also recognises the obligations and accountabilities that all staff and students have to maintain and enhance Awanuiarangi.

Students and staff accept responsibility to be accountable in the te ao Maori academic environment, and to our knowledge communities, marae and external stakeholders.
