  About Education Foundation

About Education Foundation

Otago Polytechnic and local businesses have long walked hand-in-hand, launching students into successful careers.

With the support of our community, we are proud to have become a leading polytechnic in New Zealand, with top marks for quality, student success and student engagement. Now, we have even greater aspirations, for ourselves, our students and for the province of Otago.

Our vision is for Otago Polytechnic to be recognised as a world-class organisation, ensuring our region is established internationally as a leading destination for career-focused education. You can play a part in helping us achieve this.

Through the Otago Polytechnic Education Foundation, private and corporate donations can help to fund opportunities for students and staff to work on community projects that will build sustainability and community resilience. Donations can also support us to develop sustainable technologies and facilities, and to demonstrate sustainable practices that could benefit businesses and our communities. 

Sustainability means that we consider the social impact of each decision we make. It’s all about balancing our goals with practices that protect and support our society and environment. We’ve made a pledge, both to our community and our students, to do the right thing – working towards a sustainable future for ourselves, and future generations.
