MIT values the student voice and empowers students to be involved in decision-making as partners at all levels of the institution.  

Whether it is to do with the teaching and learning in the classroom, what’s happening at your campus, or even during your lunch break, we value what you have to say and there are lots of ways to get involved.

If you want to share something individually, you can do that online through the student feedback form by clicking here. You can choose to send it anonymously, or provide us with your details if you want us to get back to you. 2 minutes to complete; nice and easy!


Student representation at MIT 

Student Voice Representation is facilitated by the Student Voice Coordinator, who helps to take care of our student representation. The MIT student voice is made up of two main levels of representation; the Student Council and School representatives. If you’d like to get involved email studentvoice@manukau.ac.nz

Student Council is made up of eight elected members and represents students at the highest level of decision making, feeding back to MIT leadership about strategic matters. This includes representation on institute committees and the Academic board. The Student Council helps to keep MIT student-centric at all levels by representing the views and needs of all MIT students. Elections are held every year between the months of August and November.

School Representatives (School Reps) represent the students in their School. Their duties cover academic, wellbeing and social needs of the students they represent. School Reps work with leadership in their schools, to represent the views and opinions of their students, assist with events and help to create a fun and engaging student experience on campus. Each school can have up to 3 school reps. School reps are recruited every year in February and July. For a full role description, click here PDF, 108.3 KB.
