Pacific Adventist University (PAU) welcomed 16 new employees to its team last week in response to the growth of the university. The new employees will be working in a variety of roles, including teaching, administration and student support.
“We are excited to welcome these new members to our team,” said PAU vice-chancellor Professor Lohi Matainaho. “They bring a wealth of experience and expertise that will be invaluable to our university.”
The new employees come from a variety of backgrounds, countries and experiences—ranging from Africa, Philippines, Myanmar, Fiji, Tonga, as well as from Papua New Guinea. Some have worked in education for many years, while others are bringing their expertise to education for the first time. According to PAU administration, they all share a passion for education, for PAU and a commitment to helping the university succeed.
“We are confident that these new employees will be a great asset to PAU,” said Professor Matainaho. “They will help us continue to provide our students with the high quality education they deserve.”
The addition of the 16 new employees reflects PAU’s response to its rising enrolment over recent years. Along with ongoing restructuring, the university is on track with its 10-year strategic plan, which focuses on growing not only in size but also improving the quality of education.
“We are proud to be a growing university,” said Professor Matainaho. “We are committed to providing our students with the resources and support they need to succeed.”
