125th Anniversary Medal - Te Taumutu Runanga Partnership
Ngai Te Ruahikihiki Ki Taumutu are the manawhenua hapu for this area and their ongoing support and advice has been critical to developments within the University. Recognition of the Treaty of Waitangi and the status of tanagata whenua is one of our key Mission goals.  We continue to work with the runanga to give practical effect to this through a range of initiatives. These include: preparation of the Taumutu Charter (Memorandum of Understanding), runanga involvement in significant university events such as graduation and international conferences, involvement in research and teaching and support for Maori students and staff. Lincoln University values its relationship with Te Taumutu Runanga.

The recipient is,

Cath Brown
As the former Chairperson of Te Taumutu Runanga, Cath Brown's leadership has been critical to the establishment and maintenance of a close working relationship between manawhenua (Ngai Te Ruahikihiki ki Taumutu) and Lincoln University. This relationship has been formalised into a Charter of Agreement between the two institutions. She has also made a significant contribution to Lincoln over many years as a guide and mentor on a wide range of Treaty and Maori development related issues.
