Over the last few months we have been developing a statement of our research values, to communicate why and how we do research at Otago Polytechnic. Our researchers are using their expertise to build a better world, contributing to Otago Polytechnic's Vision. We do this by undertaking research that informs programmes and underpins teaching, as well as addressing the needs and issues of communities, professions, and employers.
We undertake research responsibly to enhance the quality of both the research and our researchers’ reputations. Our Otago Polytechnic values of caring, courage, accountability and empowerment undergird our commitment to provide a safe and sustainable research environment. You can read about our research values here.
