At the heart of the University are our excellent people – both academic and professional staff, dedicated to the development of the University and its students. We provide an environment in which highly talented people can flourish, contributing to the future of our students, the Auckland community and New Zealand.
We employ over 5,400 academic and professional staff to support over 41,000 students, making us the country’s largest university and one of New Zealand’s largest employers.
We have a strong global reputation for research and teaching excellence which, with the commercialisation of intellectual property via UniServices, generates revenue of almost NZ $1billion.
Our mission is to be a “research-led, international university, recognised for excellence in teaching, learning, research, creative work, and administration, for the significance of its contributions to the advancement of knowledge and its commitment to serve its local, national and international communities”.
We are committed to building on our leading position within New Zealand through the efforts and excellence of our people, past and present.
