Tuia Te Ako is the national Māori tertiary education hui that brings together prominent leaders in Māori tertiary education, iwi, Māori tertiary education providers, individuals from the broader tertiary sector, learners, and whānau in a hui dedicated to supporting future success of all Māori in tertiary education.
