Policy Library tip: Linking to a UC policy

Did you know that you can hyperlink to a policy? Using a hyperlink to the official electronic version of a policy on the UC Policy Library (UCPL) is preferable to downloading and saving a policy onto your own computer or uploading it onto your web page, because once a policy is printed, or downloaded and saved or uploaded outside of the UCPL, it becomes an uncontrolled version and may be out of date. To hyperlink to a policy:

  1. Select the name of the policy that you want to display as a hyperlink.
  2. Select Hyperlink on the Insert tab or by right clicking.
  3. Copy the URL link to the policy by right clicking the named link to the policy on the UCPL and selecting Copy shortcut.
  4. Paste the URL link into the Address box in the Insert hyperlink box ensuring that Existing File or Web Page is selected on the left under Link to.
  5. Check that the hyperlink works by pressing Ctrl + left click on the link.

For more information see the Metapolicy or the FAQs section of the UC Policy Library, or contact the Policy Unit.”

Manaakitanga – local marae responses to community need

Kia ora tātou,
I have been feeling very grateful of late that we have active, organised marae communities in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Witness the actions of Takahanga Marae, and Tuahiwi Marae in feeding and accommodating those in need after the recent quake sequences. Witness Te Puea Marae in Auckland, and others, responding to those who are homeless.
This is manaakitanga in action. Putting people first. Tangata tū, tangata ora – people prepared to make a difference.
