Our Whānau – Who’s who in the crew

Mā tini mā mano, ka rapa te whai.
Through shared commitment and collaboration, success will come quicker.

Now is the time to take control of your destiny and make a better future for you and your whānau.

Join the Ara whānau and connect with others through a variety of different kaupapa Māori events and activities. You never know who you’ll meet. We may even be cousins!

Our Students

You'll find Māori students in all departments across Ara, and we encourage you to get involved, connect and help lift each other up. You can do this easily by just being there. And, if you’d like to get more involved, sign up to become one of our Teina Tuakana Mentors or an Ara Student Ambassador.

Our Graduates

Ara Māori graduates are everywhere and many have gone on to do great things. Read more about some of our alumni and their amazing stories. One day, we’d love to tell your story here too.

Our Staff

From the front desk to the board room, the Ara Māori whānau are here for you and focused on getting you through. We're connected to our communities, have you at the heart of everything we do, and know that your success is our success.

Build for your future today.

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou, ka ora te iwi.
With your contribution and mine, together we ‘ll be fine.
