NPM Researcher Delivers Professorial Lecture

NPM Principal Investigator Professor Jenny Lee-Morgan (Te Wānanga o Ōwairaka-Unitec) recently delivered her Inaugural Professorial Lecture in Auckland.

Jenny is the new Professor of Māori Research, responsible for leading Unitec’s Strategic Focus initiative on Māori Research and is currently co-leading (together with Rau Hoskins) Te Manaaki o te Marae: The role of marae in the Auckland housing crisis; a significant Kāinga Tahi, Kāinga Rua - Building Better Homes, Towns and Cities project funded by the National Science Challenge.

She was interviewed on Radio Waatea here and also here in te reo Māori.

Jenny was a leader in our ongoing MAI Te Kupenga initiatives and has been a part of the NPM whānau for many years, pursuing her research aspirations and work in the fields of pūrākau, education, te reo Māori, and now more recently with marae and Māori communities.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga congratulates Jenny on her Professorship, and your many colleagues across our network celebrate your achievement.
