To our students

As we approach the week’s end, I wanted to reach out to you again following the distressing news around the loss of a student, and the circumstances surrounding it.

Our thoughts are with the student’s whānau, friends and loved ones. Respecting the family’s wishes, we have limited our comments publicly.

A formal statement was released on Wednesday 25 September sharing our devastation and our commitment to supporting the Police in their ongoing inquiries.

In addition, we confirmed our intent to commission an independent and comprehensive investigation in order to identify how this happened, and the actions required to ensure this never happens again.

Our priority is you and your wellbeing. It’s important you look after yourselves, and one another. If you need help, please reach out to any of the support services available on campus (see below).

We are here for you, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. If you haven’t already, take a moment to check in with your family or whānau and let them know you’re okay.

Ngā mihi,

Professor Cheryl de la Rey
Tumu Whakarae | Vice-Chancellor
