This graphic shows the historical organizational structure of committees at Unitec.
Te Pūkenga has an additional committee structure which is gradually replacing these committees.
The most important committee for you to be aware of as a new lecturer is the PAQC, a programme level committee.
Programme Academic Quality Committees (PAQC)
All programmes are linked to a PAQC. PAQCs deliver operational oversight of Unitec's programmes. Course level quality matters are all reported at PAQC. All course results are approved at PAQC. The video at the bottom of this page gives more of an insight into PAQCs.
