UC Child Well-Being Research Institute: Whiriwhiria, kia ora ai te tamaiti

Co-Directors of a new UC Research Institute, Professor Gail Gillon, Pro-Vice Chancellor of the College of Education, Health and Human Development, and Dr Angus Macfarlane, Professor of Māori Research, are pleased to announce the launch of the Child Wellbeing Research Institute.

They declare that the Institute will be driven by maintaining a focus on the skills required when drawing from sound research  platforms in the explorations for better understandings of how to support the success of our tamariki, particularly those who face challenges in their learning, and healthy development.

This work has culminated in the emergence of the Institute under the emblem Whiriwhiria, kia ora ai te tamaiti – Braiding education and health together so the child will flourish. The overall aim of the institute will be to advance high quality, multidisciplinary research that enhances the learning success and healthy development of children and young people.

The focus will be multidisciplinary, and will promote high-quality research related to infants, children, and adolescents within the context of their whānau, family and community. There will be a strong commitment to leading the way in the development of a strengths-based discourse that speaks to the context of Aotearoa New Zealand.

The Institute will co-construct its projects with partner organisations, tribal entities, and communities of interest locally and on the wider frontiers. It will embrace the premises of Vision Mātauranga and build on the learnings and realities from Te Ao Māori and Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa.

Four major themes will prevail: learning success,  physical and cultural wellbeing, social and emotional wellbeing, and child population health and wellbeing. Strands that will weave across these themes will include: Vision Mātuaranga, whānau and community big data analysis, economic impact analysis, digital technologies, critique, policy, and advocacy.
