Wheako Tauira | Student Experience

We work in partnership with tauira to help you navigate uni life and create better student experiences. We want you to feel empowered as a learner in our community, whatever that means for you.

Wheako Tauira can help you recognise your strengths and guide you in how to participate in all things uni life has to offer. We support all students, so if you don’t know where to go for help you can start with us.

We help tauira by:

  • Advising – providing advice on life as a uni student in the Aotearoa, New Zealand context
  • Navigating – connecting you with the right people and communities on and off-campus to meet your individual needs
  • Partnering – working alongside you to develop solutions to improve your experiences
  • Advocating – we ensure the student voice is heard when there’s no student in the room.
  • Hiring – we hire students in casual and volunteer experience roles

We partner with tauira on:

  • Respectfully Lincoln safe and respectful relationships workshops
  • LU Buddies volunteer peer support programme
  • Transition to university initiatives, including orientation
  • Diversity and inclusion promotion and activities
  • Student voice feedback, surveys and workshops
  • Te Roopu Wheako Tauira, a working group about all things around the student experience.

Another big part of our role is to support and partner with Te Awhioraki, the LU Students’ Association (LUSA) and student clubs to help them offer great uni experiences.
