Tītoko—Centre for Student Success
The Tītoko team provides front line and ongoing assistance to students across all faculties and schools, and our name reflects our supporting role.
Tītoko is a new Centre for Student Success that has been created to provide comprehensive support for students across all of the University's faculties and schools.
Our iho (essence) is to provide holistic advice that meets the needs of our diverse community of tauira (students), who are at the centre of our mahi (work).
Tītoko acts as a first port-of-call for questions about studies, student administration, support services, and student life in general.
Every student has access to a Student Success Adviser, who can provide more in-depth support. Our Student Success Advisers are organised into subject area teams, many of which are co-located with faculty offices.
What Tītoko means
In the Māori language, a tītoko is the supporting rod between the mast and sail of a waka (canoe). We see this supporting rod as the support we provide our tauira on their lifelong learning journey.
