"I would like to draw your attention to Jenny Te Paa's lecture as part of The University of Auckland Distinguished Alumni Award speaking series. Jenny completed her MEd in 1995 on the events which preceded the re-establishment of Te Rau Kahikatea Theological College of Te Pihopatanga o Aotearoa. She has distinguished herself as a teacher, academic and humanitarian and is a popular guest speaker on such topics as social injustice and indigenous rights and has been recognised internationally for her work in social services." - Associate Professor Graeme Aitken, Dean of Faculty of Education
