The Office of Pasifika Student Success is dedicated to helping lecturers and services providers interact well with Pasifika students and so we have developed Yuni-Tok (pidgin for ‘university talk’). We provide here some background information that you may find useful including some information on demographics, the Pasifika@Massey Strategy, a discussion of Pasifika values, an explanation of student behaviours you may encounter, stereotypes that should be avoided, some pedagogical approaches and a few phrases you might like to learn from the most commonly spoken Pasifika languages at Massey University.
The Yuni-Tok booklet is available in a series of web pages as follows:
Yuni Tok - Your guide to engaging with Pasifika students (1,540 KB)
