What roles and responsibilities do universities have within their communities? How does your institution make a social impact?

We can look to success stories abroad to answer these questions and more. Join The Chronicle in conversation with Aotearoa New Zealand’s University of Canterbury’s vice-chancellor, Cheryl de la Rey, to learn more about how they work with partners Ngāi Tūāhuriri to fulfill responsibilities as Aotearoa’s first Treaty university. Learn their approach to: 

  • Making education accessible for Indigenous students.

  • Incubating businesses.

  • Supporting local communities in times of need.

  • Contributing to a more sustainable future.
