Feedback on the Name Simplification Process
ICYMI: The university is looking to change its name from Victoria University of Wellington to University of Wellington.
On Friday 27 July, the University Council voted to approve the simplification of the university's official name. More details on that decision can be found here.
VUWSA has not made an official submission throughout the process. We have voiced our support for a change, in relation to a number of reasons including a change for the Māori name of the university, and to reflect a more forward thinking institution - however, ultimately would support whatever students saw as the right decision. To date, we have not received significant feedback from students either for or against a name change. This is your opportunity to tell VUWSA how you wish students to be represented on the issue.
Below is a form for you to give us feedback which will go towards VUWSA forming an official stance on the name change. Official feedback to the university on this process can be sent to email@example.com
