Te Noho Kotahitanga was officially opened on Friday, March 13, 2009 in front of more than 1000 people, on hand to be part of Unitec history.
The marae confirms Unitec’s commitment to its partnership document, ‘Te Noho Kotahitanga’, created in 2001 to show the institution’s commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi. It enables Unitec to advance the aim of having a Māori dimension to its teaching and research.
The marae has already attracted much interest with staff and students keen to learn more about it. Unitec’s Maia Māori Development Centre has the task of being the guardian of the marae.
