Whitireia New Zealand is committed to supporting and encouraging staff and student research. We believe that research creates opportunities for learning and achievement to flourish.
Staff at Whitireia undertake a wide range of research, which supports and enhances our degree level teaching, as well as other programmes.
In addition to the well-established Pacific Health Research Centre, research is a strong part of the teaching and learning culture in the Schools of Nursing and Health Studies, Computing, Arts, Business and Administration and Early Childhood Education.
Focal areas for research at Whitireia are kaupapa Māori research, applied research in the Faculty of Business & Information Technology and the ongoing development of internationally recognised creative research achievements from the Faculty of Arts and Te Wānanga Māori.
Staff research is supported through the services of the Research Co-ordinator and the Research and Ethics Committee.
