Māori Students Learning Adviser
Eugene is our Māori student support advisor at Carey. His role is to support and advocate for Māori students to enable them to thrive in their experience and studies at Carey.
Eugene is also furthering his own education at Otago pursuing a Theology doctorate and has a passionate desire to see Māori theology flourish in Aotearoa.
“As a reclaimer of Māoritanga, Carey for me was the first place I encountered where if I was to ask theologically challenging questions it was generally encouraged, and I would be guided to find the answers instead of dismissed outright. Therefore, as the Māori student support advisor, I want to continue to embody that experience for students who are also compulsive questioners like me.”
