Waikato University staff, students protest plan to scrap Māori faculty

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 15 August 2018

Students and staff at the University of Waikato are calling a proposal to scrap the Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies a "white-streaming" of Māori issues. More than 80 people gathered in a peaceful protest yesterday over a re-structure which will see the faculty lose its status and fall under the Arts and Social Sciences division.
