Strategic Partnerships, Advancement & Communications (SPAC)


New Zealand

The University’s partnership with New Zealand like Australia has been a long standing one since the start of the University. New Zealand was amongst the countries that had commissioned the establishment of the University in 1968. It has provided support towards the core budget of the University, which has enabled USP to position itself well to serve the Pacific region with ICT, research, education and regionalism becoming the transformative strategy for the University. The key achievements under each of the Priority Areas of the Strategic Plan has been made possible by the funding support from New Zealand, as their funds are allocated to all of the Priority Areas.   They have been funding through partnership arrangements for 3 year duration since 2010 and currently working on the next one.

Some key project initiatives supported by New Zealand include:

  1. The Pacific Regional Initiatives for the Delivery of Basic Education (PRIDE) in collaboration with the European Union;
  2. Pacific Legal Information Institute (PacLII); 
  3. The establishment of the USPNet Satellite in 1998; and
  4. Current upgrades to the USPNet Satellite project in the USP regional campuses.
