Meet the Student Advocate

 Adam Nee  

Kia ora koutou, I am your student advocate for the Mount Albert and Waitākere campuses. I bring over a decade of experience as a sworn officer in the New Zealand Police and as a Kaiwhakamanawa for motor industry apprentices. Now, acting as your student advocate, I am here to āwhina (assist) you through the varying processes within Unitec and to tautoko (support) you in resolving your issues and complaints. I am focused on providing the best service possible to all ākonga (students) and welcome you all to reach out. Me mahi tahi tātou mo te oranga o te katoa (We must work together for the wellbeing of everyone).
