MASSEY UNIVERSITY Mission Statement Massey University is committed to meeting the needs of New Zealand and New Zealanders, enhancing access to university study for diverse populations, preparing students for life-long learning, and meeting international standards of excellence in research and teaching. Massey University is an integrated multi-campus institution of higher learning that creates new knowledge and understanding; synthesises, applies and disseminates knowledge; develops advanced learning and scholarly abilities for a national and international student body; and promotes free and rational inquiry. We offer high-quality learning experiences that empower people and their communities to prosper in an increasingly knowledgedependent and technologically advanced world. Massey University is driven by a spirit of community relevance and engagement, while maintaining intellectual independence. We will use our multi-campus structure to meet the needs of our constituent regional communities, while our ﬂexible delivery and distance (extramural) education capabilities give a national and international reach to our educational programmes. Massey University recognises and respects the signiﬁcance of mana whenua within its regions and the range of Mäori organisations contributing to Mäori development and advancement. We have demonstrated our commitment to Mäori development by providing Mäori academic leadership, research opportunities and educational qualiﬁcations that assist in the achievement of Mäori aspirations. Our integrated academic structures and organisational arrangements enable and support interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research and academic programmes. We pride ourselves on the relevance of our programmes; on our openness to students of diverse backgrounds spanning age, geographic location, educational background, ethnicity and culture; on the support we provide for our students; and on the relationship we have built with our alumni. 1 REPORT FROM THE Chancellor I am pleased to report the positive outcome of the 2007 year for Massey University. As noted in the previous year’s Annual Report, the University commenced the year with a number of challenges including the need to re-establish a strong ﬁnancial position. Elsewhere in this report details are given of a surplus for the year well ahead of that originally budgeted, and at $9m much closer to the ﬁnancial goals the University has set for itself, and the minimum requirements generally regarded as being acceptable within the university sector. While this positive outcome was assisted in part by some one-off contributions not previously recognised in the University’s ﬁnancial reports, it also occurred as a result of a substantial improvement in the University’s ﬁnancial management and planning. Activity levels within the University largely went according to plan. Domestic enrolments were on target assisted by a further increase in postgraduate student participation. In keeping with past years, and trends throughout the sector, international student enrolments were at lower levels than originally forecast, but nevertheless continue to make a signiﬁcant contribution to the University’s ﬁnancial outcome and most importantly to its international proﬁle. This year’s ﬁnancial improvement is of course assisted by the decision of the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) late in 2006 to grant an exemption from the fees maxima regime. This enabled the University to signiﬁcantly close the adverse gap that previously existed in domestic fees. Notwithstanding this correction domestic fees remain amongst the lowest within New Zealand universities. The year coincided with the completion of the University’s strategic positioning within the tertiary sector. During the past few years there has been a planned reduction in the number of domestic students as subdegree programmes have been largely removed from the portfolio, and greater focus given to traditional undergraduate and increasingly post graduate programmes. This has resulted in comparatively marked reductions in the number of domestic students, principally on the Wellington campus. It should also be noted that students previously enrolled by Massey in our Conservatorium of Music are now reported independently within the New Zealand School of Music programmes currently consolidated within Victoria University. Students continue to be based on Massey University’s Wellington campus pending the planned development of a new School facility within Wellington’s central business district. 2 It is pleasing to be able to note that while overall the level of international participation has reduced on the back of a major reduction in Chinese student enrolments there has been a noticeable increase in the level of international students enrolled across all three campuses from the Middle East, Southern Asia and increasingly, North America. This broadening base of international contribution is particularly encouraging and bodes well for the future. The underlying ﬁnancial position of Massey remains very sound and will continue to improve notwithstanding the unsatisfactory ﬁnancial contributions that the University has experienced over the past two years. As reported in greater detail within the ﬁnancial review, the University has an asset base of almost $1 billion with only a small portion of this funded by speciﬁc borrowings. With $50 million cash reserves Massey is adequately placed to maintain its investment programme across all three campuses to ensure students and other stakeholders are provided with the appropriate level of facilities and technology that their programmes require. During 2008 the long overdue start to a major expansion of library and study space at the Auckland campus will commence and it will be closely followed by a major upgrade in Wellington. The University last revalued its land and buildings as at 1 January 2006 and intends to complete a further revaluation as at 31 December 2008. We do not believe that more frequent valuation is warranted or would add value for the reader of this Annual Report. Our auditors are of the opinion that property values have increased by a material amount in the two years since the last revaluation was undertaken and have accordingly issued a qualiﬁed audit opinion in relation to land and building valuation. We respectfully disagree with the stance taken by our auditors in this matter. In the main, University property will be retained in the long term and has limited value for other than educational use. There are also potential restrictions on title to some land which mean that it would be difﬁcult to obtain full market value in the event of sale. I take this opportunity of expressing support for the change of focus in the tertiary sector brought about by the new approach to tertiary funding. The shift and emphasis away from the “bums on seats” model is welcomed. The targeted approach in provision of academic programmes throughout the tertiary sector is long overdue. However, as is often the case, the change of focus is to some degree an over-reaction and potentially inhibits the ability of universities to continue to be creative and innovative in responding to opportunities, and meeting the requirements in what has to be recognised as a rapidly changing international tertiary and research environment. Under the new regime, all universities will in effect have to set a cap on programmes for domestic students. This will expand the number of programmes which essentially will now have to be provided under forms of limited entry. Potentially domestic students seeking enrolment within the university sector will ﬁnd that they are denied entry. The change of focus also fails to address the long-recognised inadequate levels of funding provided to New Zealand universities, particularly when benchmarked internationally. While this is evident on all per capita measurements, it is particularly frustrating that the level of investment made by the government in the broad science-based sectors is particularly out of line within Massey. The level of government funding 3 when combined with student fee contributions barely covers the direct costs of academic support, thereby requiring the University’s continued investment in infrastructure and technical support to be made from other sources. Given New Zealand’s continued reliance upon its agriculture-based economy this lack of ﬁnancial support is particularly ironic. Much of the focus during 2007 within the University centred upon the introduction of the new investment plan process, replacing the previous structure of university charters and proﬁles. This process closely paralleled the strategic approach that Massey had been taking in deﬁning its academic offerings both regionally and nationally. As earlier noted, this change of approach will impose potential restrictions on the number of domestic students able to be enrolled over the next three years, which is contrary to the strategic vision that the University has developed. As an example, Massey has long recognised the comparative substantial low level of engagement in sciences. Notwithstanding the ﬁnancial barriers earlier referred to, Massey has recognised the necessity to develop an environment which will ensure the further development of academic capability and performance and encourage the attraction of more students into this essential sector. It would be particularly disappointing if this strategic objective was not to be recognised within government policy. In addition, Massey is almost unique with its development of extramural distance learning programmes. For a variety of reasons students participating within this sector of tertiary study have declined during the past few years. In response Massey has set for itself the objective of providing further encouragement and support to ensure that students, whose only means of access to university study is by this process, are able to be encouraged and supported and accordingly ensure higher completion levels are achieved. This has been recognised as being particularly important within the Mäori and Pasiﬁka communities. The third area where Massey recognises it has a strategic objective to support growth centres upon the responsibility that Massey accepts to be the university of the North Shore. This region is rapidly expanding and increased levels of student participation from both school leavers and new migrants will continue to require further investment, which will likewise put pressure on the arbitrary domestic enrolment ceilings currently being imposed. As the year concludes it is appropriate to acknowledge the contribution that the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Judith Kinnear, has made to Massey University during her ﬁve-year term. Her focus on academic development and encouragement of investment in infrastructure to support academic excellence warrants particular mention. This academic leadership was a contributing factor to Massey’s improvement in the most recent Performance-Based Research Fund round, where not only did Massey improve its overall position, but more importantly was ranked number one in a larger number of disciplines. Areas of traditional strength in agriculture, food and biological sciences, and veterinary studies, were joined by such emerging areas as design, nursing, public health and ﬁnance. Fine arts will shortly join this select group. 4 It is also appropriate to acknowledge the recent decision made by Council to appoint the Hon Steve Maharey as Vice-Chancellor. Mr Maharey, a past student and academic at Massey, and a previous Minister of Education, has developed an intimate knowledge of the tertiary environment and has shown strong leadership in reshaping the education sector. Equally impressive is his obvious passion for the University. The announcement of his appointment has been widely endorsed and all within the University look forward to his taking up his appointment in mid 2008. Pending his arrival Council has appointed Professor Ian Warrington as Acting Vice-Chancellor. 2008 will bring further new challenges and opportunities for Massey University. Many strategically important decisions had to be made in 2007. These ranged from matters of an essentially ﬁscal nature, through to the development of a clear direction for Massey with its multi-campus positioning and unique distance learning responsibilities. I have been pleased to lead a cohesive and uniﬁed Council that has provided broad support to the University during a period of signiﬁcant change. 2008 has seen three new faces around the Council table with all three student positions changing. It is particularly important to note that it was the end of a era when we farewelled the longest-serving Council member, Extramural Students’ Society representative, Liz Hawes, who had served on the University Council since April 1999. Her contribution, along with that of all student members on Council, has been invaluable and Council was pleased that her contribution in supporting New Zealand students will be able to be continued in her new role as Co-President of the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations. As we move into 2008 we do so in a positive ﬁnancial position. However this strength is totally overshadowed by the signiﬁcant resource that Massey University has within its staff. This capability, experience and commitment, when aligned with the ﬁnancial resources available provides an overall environment that gives Council the conﬁdence that Massey University will successfully meet all its challenges and ensure that in 2008, and the years beyond, it will continue to make a signiﬁcant contribution to the economic, social and cultural growth of New Zealand. Nigel Gould Chancellor Massey University 5 REPORT FROM THE Vice-Chancellor The 2007 year provided many challenges, including some of particular signiﬁcance for the future of Massey University. One key challenge lay in securing improved outcomes from the Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF) which provides an increasing component of our funding from the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). The quantum of funding received is determined principally (60 per cent) by staff quality evaluation scores. Outcomes of the second PBRF round announced in May 2007 identiﬁed that, relative to the ﬁrst round, Massey’s quality evaluation score increased by 45 per cent owing to an increased proportion of quality-ranked researchers, including a 52 per cent increase in the number of A-ranked researchers. This achievement reﬂects both a remarkable commitment by Massey academic staff and the implementation of a University-wide quality assurance plan. Another important challenge was the preparation and submission of bids for the second round of nationally funded Centres of Research Excellence (CoREs). Each CoRE has a number of key partner institutions which contribute to the critical mass of outstanding researchers in each domain, and Massey’s involvement in these, either as the host institution or as a partner institution, is one major signal of our research standing and our commitment to research training. It was most pleasing that Massey’s Riddet Centre: Advancing Knowledge in Foods and Biologicals was the only new CoRE to be funded in this round and that the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution, an existing CoRE hosted by Massey University, secured ongoing funding. Massey University is also a partner in three other existing CoREs that received further funding; namely, the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology; the National Centre for Advanced Bio-Protection Technologies, and the National Centre for Growth and Development. A third key challenge for Massey lay in the ﬁnancial domain. For 2006 we had reported an end-of-yeardeﬁcit, and accordingly, during 2007 all academic and administrative units worked constructively and cooperatively in order to achieve an agreed end-of-year surplus. The positive ﬁnancial outcome detailed in this annual report reﬂects the commitment of senior managers and their staff to achieve an agreed goal. Another signiﬁcant challenge for Massey in 2007 arose in relation to the education reforms and their consequent changes in funding announced by the TEC in the Tertiary Education Strategy 2007 – 12. The previous funding model, based on enrolment numbers, was unpredictable and open ended; in contrast, the new funding model to be introduced for 2008 is premised on managed change and planned growth. and entails engagement with various stakeholders, both local and national. In moving from a sole reliance on student numbers, the new funding model will be of beneﬁt in that our student numbers have declined owing 6 “Massey’s proud record of recognition at a national level for excellence in teaching.” to factors including the national downturn in international undergraduate students, particularly from China, and the impact of the buoyant New Zealand economy. In response to the education reforms, universities were required during 2007 to develop a document Investing in a Plan, which inter alia identiﬁed academic priorities and quality assurance mechanisms and forecast student numbers. It is pleasing to report that, as a ﬁrst step, Massey’s investment plan was approved in full by the TEC Board of Commissioners for a period of three years, the maximum possible. As will be apparent from the remainder of this report, these were just some of many Massey highlights for 2007. Teaching in a research-informed environment and undertaking research training in a research-active environment are the two pillars of university activity. On the teaching side, Massey’s commitment to excellence in teaching was acknowledged in the success of various initiatives, including Massey University in 2007 becoming the host institution for New Zealand’s ﬁrst Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence: Ako Aotearoa. This government-funded centre will receive $20 million over ﬁve years and is dedicated to assisting New Zealand tertiary education organisations and educators to deliver the best possible outcomes for students through research, development, provision of policy advice and acting as an information repository and resource for the support of effective teaching. The teaching role of our academic staff was again acknowledged through the annual Vice-Chancellor’s Teaching Excellence Awards, with four staff recognised in 2007 for their commitment to excellence in teaching. Awards for Sustained Excellence in Teaching were made to Dr Bryan Walpert, School of English and Media Studies; Dr Tracy Riley, School of Curriculum and Pedagogy; and Dr Andrew Martin, Department of Management; and the award for Excellence in First-Year Teaching was made to Dr Sharon Stevens, School of English and Media Studies. Again this year, two of these Massey awardees, Dr Bryan Walpert, and Dr Tracy Riley, were nominated for National Teaching Excellence Awards for Sustained Excellence and won awards. In doing so, they continued Massey’s proud record of recognition at a national level for excellence in teaching. The Vice-Chancellor’s 2007 Symposium entitled Teachers Still Matter: The Magic of Teaching, was held on each campus in December, with the focus of the symposium being on the importance of teaching, the enjoyment obtained from teaching, and the satisfaction gained by staff and students from engagement in productive, positive and successful teaching and learning experiences. We were delighted to welcome back, as this year’s guest speaker, Professor Iain Hay of Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia. Professor Hay, a former Massey staff member, won the Australian Prime Minister’s award for university teaching in 2006. As part of a continuing focus on further advancing distance education and e-learning at Massey University a new position of Director of Distance Education was established, with Associate Professor Mark Brown being appointed, and Dr Terry Stewart, an academic with outstanding credentials in e-learning, was 7 appointed to the new position of Teaching Fellow. Both appointees are based in the Centre for Academic Development and E-Learning, formerly the University Training and Development Unit, and will make major contributions to policies, procedures and staff training in these areas. Accreditation by external associations, national and international, is an important component to ensure the maintenance of quality, relevance and currency of courses of study in professional domains offered by Massey. A major milestone for Massey in 2007 was the reaccreditation of the Bachelor of Veterinary Sciences (BVSc) degree by the American Veterinary Medical Association – noting that Massey is just one of only eight non-US universities to have this accreditation – and the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council. This degree is also accredited by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and graduates are able to obtain registration from the British Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Other examples include: the Bachelor of Nursing (BN) programme reaccredited by the Nursing Council of New Zealand, and also accredited in Australia under CER (Closer Economic Relations Trade Agreement), with graduates able to apply for registration in the United Kingdom, Ireland, the United States, Canada and a range of Middle East countries; and the Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science (BMLSc), reaccredited by the New Zealand Medical Laboratory Science Board. This programme is also accredited in Australia, and graduates are able to obtain registration as biomedical scientists in the United Kingdom. On the research front, Massey University’s ongoing commitment to focused excellence in research and research training was acknowledged internationally and nationally. In the latest PBRF results mentioned above, Massey achieved the third-highest number of research-active staff in the sector, ranked in the top three in 13 subject areas, achieved quality scores above the sector average in 19 subject areas, and ranked ﬁrst in Design, Nursing and Veterinary Studies and Large Animal Science. The internal pathway for Promotion to Professor, established in 2003, continues to provide an opportunity to recognise and acknowledge Massey staff who have demonstrated sustained outstanding leadership and excellence. In 2007, promotions to professor were awarded to: • Associate Professor Michael Belgrave, School of Social and Cultural Studies • Associate Professor Charles Brennan, Institute of Food Nutrition and Human Health • Associate Professor Charles Little, Institute of Fundamental Sciences • Associate Professor Richard Haverkamp, Institute of Technology and Engineering • Dr Andrew Shilton, Institute of Technology and Engineering • Associate Professor William Pomroy, Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences. The title of Distinguished Professor, established in 2004, recognises professorial staff who have achieved positions of international eminence in their ﬁeld, with recipients retaining this title for the duration of their appointment at Massey. This select group numbers no more than 10 at any time, and in 2007 renowned historian Professor Kerry Howe, School of Social and Cultural Studies, was appointed as a Distinguished Professor and joins ﬁve other Massey academics who have previously received this title through this channel, namely Distinguished Professors Paul Moughan, David Lambert, David Penny, David Parry and Bill Tunmer. 8 “Massey publicly acknowledged its outstanding academic staff.” Massey’s research reputation was also enhanced by the international recognition accorded to academic staff, such as: • Professor Al Rowland, Institute of Molecular Biosciences, whose cytogenetic analysis of the DNA of New Zealand nuclear test veterans made international headlines and was applauded in the British House of Commons • Professor Robert McLachlan, Institute of Fundamental Sciences, named as the recipient of the prestigious Dahlquist Prize, by the Society for Industrial and Applied Maths, for his outstanding contribution to geometric integration and composition methods, and the application of his work in many areas, this being the ﬁrst time this award has gone to a mathematician from the Southern Hemisphere • Professor Roger Morris, EpiCentre, Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences, whose expertise in disease surveillance and modelling was called upon by the British Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to predict the spread of foot and mouth disease during the outbreak in August this year • Professor Claire Massey, New Zealand Centre for Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Research, Department of Management and Enterprise Development, elected VicePresident (Research) of the International Council for Small Business and President of the Small Enterprise Association of Australia and New Zealand, the ﬁrst New Zealander to hold either position. Again, in 2007, Massey publicly acknowledged its outstanding academic staff at a gala dinner held at the Banquet Hall, Parliament Buildings, Wellington, where our Teaching Excellence awardees (identiﬁed above) were recognised and where Research Medal Awards were made as follows: • Outstanding Individual Researcher: Professor Neil Pearce, Centre for Public Health Research • Outstanding Supervisor: Professor Barry Scott, Institute of Molecular Biosciences • Outstanding Research Team: Te Pümanawa Hauora, the Research Centre for Mäori Health and Development, led by Professor Chris Cunningham • 2007 Early Career Medals: - Dr Ben Marshall, Department of Finance, Banking and Property - Dr Ajay Awati, Riddet Centre - Dr Glen Pettigrove, School of History, Philosophy and Politics. During 2007, Massey University continued to build on its research strengths and to enhance knowledge transfer through various initiatives, including the launch of the New Zealand Institute of Advanced Study (NZIAS), the appointment of Landcare Research principal scientist Surinder Saggar as the ﬁrst joint professorial research fellowship between Massey University and Landcare Research, and the collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries that has resulted in their funding of two new research professorships in Biochar (carbon that can be incorporated into soil) and Pyrolysis (processing of biomass feedstock into biochar). As part of building future research capability, in 2007 Massey continued its growth in postgraduate research enrolments and had a record number (875) of doctoral candidates. In 9 2007 there were 112 doctoral completions, with 103 of these being PhD degrees – an increase on 85 such award last year. On the technology transfer front, Massey’s Riddet Centre led by Professors Paul Moughan and Harjinder Singh developed an emulsion-based omega-3 micro-encapsulation technology. This world-ﬁrst technology will allow omega-3, a fatty acid essential for neurological development in young children and with a range of important health beneﬁts for adults, to be incorporated into a range of products without the ﬁshy smell or taste normally associated with omega-3. This breakthrough technology will be taken to the international consumer market through a partnership between the University, the Riddet Centre, the BioCommerce Centre and Speirs Foods. Speirs Nutritionals Ltd will develop, license and market the omega-3 technology. In July 2007 the $2.7 million Speirs Nutritionals Plant in Marton was ofﬁcially opened and will produce the omega-3 emulsion using the Massey technology. Also in late 2007, the Manawatu Investment Group, a subsidiary of the BioCommerce Centre, committed a seven-ﬁgure sum investment into the commercialisation of Anzode, a Massey-developed revolutionary zinc battery technology. Investment in infrastructure and facilities in support of teaching, research and research training during 2007 included the following. • The Hopkirk Research Institute: This $17 million state-of-the-art research facility opened in March 2007 on the Palmerston North campus. A collaborative venture between AgResearch and Massey University, it houses the largest concentration of animal health scientists in the Southern Hemisphere and will focus on research in areas relevant to the health and welfare of pastoral livestock, with an emphasis on endemic diseases. • The Solexa Genome Analysis System: Commissioned by the Allan Wilson Centre, this is a next-generation DNA sequencer which will enable scientists to analyse DNA 100 times faster than previously. The Solexa is intended to become an accredited facility, the only one in the Southern Hemisphere. • The Massey University Manawatu Microscopy and Imaging Centre: This state-of-the-art facility, opened in August by the Prime Minister, the Right Hon Helen Clark, houses a range of imaging equipment – light, ﬂuorescence and confocal microscopes, and electron microscopes, both scanning and transmission – to support research and research training in the biological and physical sciences. • The Massey University Equine and Farm Service wing of the Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences: This $1 million facility at Palmerston North serves farm and equestrian clients of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital and will enhance the teaching of veterinary students. • The Frasca Truﬂite Simulator: The acquisition of this new simulator at the Massey School of Aviation’s Milson Flight Centre in Palmerston North meets an identiﬁed need in pilot training and will enhance the quality of aviation education and training for students, including a multi-crew competency training module. 10 • Renovated Student Centre building: The renovated Student Centre building at Turitea, Palmerston North, was ofﬁcially opened in February by the Prime Minister, the Right Hon. Helen Clark. The Mä[email protected] Strategy has been the key strategy for Mäori development at Massey University. In 2007, in alignment with the tertiary education reforms and in keeping with this strategy, a new strategic plan was developed: Kia Maia: Key Initiatives for a Mäori Academic Investment Agenda. Mäori research centres across the University were supported through the activities of Te Mata o Te Tau, The Academy for Mäori Research and Scholarship. Consistent with the desire to advance scholarship and promote Mäori research excellence, these activities included the publication of Matariki, a monograph designed as a forum for Mäori researchers and academics. The University actively promoted engagement and collaboration internationally and with indigenous peoples within areas of teaching and research through hosting international visitors including: Stephen Pompedelli, from Harvard Medical School, who assisted with the analysis of cultural markers in the Psychiatric Epidemiology study; Dr Marjorie Mau from the Department of Native Hawaiian Health, University of Hawaii, on a research exchange; and, Dr Keaweaimoku Kaholokula from the Department of Native Hawaiian Health, University of Hawaii, on a research exchange. The Pasiﬁ[email protected] Strategy is the key strategy for Pasiﬁka development at Massey University. 2007 was the ﬁrst year of its implementation and important initial work was completed, including the National Action Plan 2006 – 09 and the Auckland Campus Action Plan 2007 – 2010. These papers are published in the Pasiﬁ[email protected] Strategy: Enroute to Cultural Democracy, July 2007. The Pasiﬁ[email protected] Community Learning Initiative was launched in August 2007 and is being piloted at Northcote College, Glenﬁeld College and Birkenhead College. The University also hosted the Whenua Research and Academic Pasiﬁka Network Conference, with presentations from Paciﬁc staff and students, launched a Pasiﬁka Leaders’ Forum series, and opened a new Pasiﬁka Learning Centre at the Wellington campus. In the staff development area, the Massey University Leadership Development programme was run for the ﬁrst time in January 2007. The programme included modules for new and emerging leaders and for experienced leaders. Massey also participated in the New Zealand Vice-Chancellors’ Committee Women in Leadership programme run for the ﬁrst time in 2007. As a follow-on from the International Women Presidents Forum meeting held in China (May/June 2007), Massey hosted at Palmerston North a Chinese delegation of Women Leaders for a one-day seminar: Mentoring of Female Faculty and Developing Leadership Skills for Future. The national contribution of Massey staff, students and alumni continued to be recognised through honours and awards. These included individuals receiving 2007 New Year Honours and Queen’s Birthday Honours and recognition from numerous bodies including the New Zealand Association of Scientists, Royal Society of New Zealand, Marsden Fund Council, Health Research Council of New Zealand, Cancer Society of New Zealand, New Zealand Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, Ministry of Research, Science and 11 Technology, Public Relations Institute of New Zealand, Property Institute of New Zealand, New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology, New Zealand Poetry Society, University Sport New Zealand, New Zealand Dairy Industry, New Zealand Federation of Business and Professional Women, Australian and New Zealand Applied Mathematical Society, Paciﬁc Island Polynesian Education Foundation, Zonta Design Awards, Qantas Media Awards, New Zealand Young Farmers, MotorSport Elite Academy, Peugeot Hokonui Fashion Design Awards, and Dyson Product Design Awards. Another key milestone was the launch in November 2007 of the inaugural annual Creative Arts Festival “BLOW Nga hau e wha” (meaning four winds) by Massey’s College of Creative Arts. The festival launch included the induction of three alumni into a College of Creative Arts Hall of Fame, with the inaugural inductees being: • Richard Taylor, Director of Weta Workshop • New York-based fashion designer Rebecca Taylor • sculptor and ﬁlmmaker Len Lye (awarded posthumously). Massey was delighted to welcome Olympic track legend and health researcher Associate Professor Peter Snell, a Massey University Foundation Visiting Fellow in Health and Exercise Science, who, in May 2007, was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Massey University. Based at the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern, Dr Snell is the Director of the Human Performance Centre in Dallas and is collaborating with Massey researchers in Public Health and Exercise Science. In November 2007, at a special graduation session at the Waihi marae, Turangi, an honorary doctorate was conferred on Tumu Te Heuheu of Ngäti Tüwharetoa, in recognition of his contributions to Mäori education, world heritage protection, and environmental stability. Massey is part of an international community of scholars. In 2007, relationships were maintained and advanced with numerous universities, research institutions and government organisations across the world, including, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Mexico, Japan, China, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Thailand, Samoa and India. The following were highlights of our international relationships in 2007. • In October 2007 a second tripartite agreement was signed between Massey University and the prestigious Peking University, China, with the third partner being the University of Inner Mongolia. This relationship builds on the successful tripartite agreement that was established in 2006 between Peking University, Massey University and Shihezi University. • Under a memorandum of agreement with Mexico’s Universidad Juarez Autonoma de Tabasco de Los Estados Unidos Mexanos (UJAT), Massey staff gave workshops in meat technology and beef supply chain management at UJAT in February 2007. • New and renewed student exchange agreements provide opportunities for Massey students to study in an offshore institution and experience new cultures. During 2007 new agreements were signed with: Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften Muenchen, Germany; Institut National 12 Polytechnique de Toulouse, France; University of Calgary, Canada; Cornell University, USA; Clarkson University, USA; and Deakin University, Australia. Agreements were renewed with: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, USA; University of Copenhagen, Denmark; and Kumamoto University, Japan. In addition during 2007, Massey hosted several international conferences that brought to the University researchers and scholars from across the globe, including: • 49th International Association for Vegetation Science Conference (February) • Evolution 2007 (June) • Chief of Army Seminar Warﬁghting in a Contemporary Environment (August) • Symposium on Insulin Resistance, Diabetes and Vulnerable Populations (October) • 2nd International Conference on Sensing Technology (ICST’07) (November) • 4th International Conference on Computational Intelligence (CIRAS’07) (November). I wish to acknowledge all Massey staff, both the academics who deliver our teaching and research training mission and the range of general staff who provide essential administrative, technical and other support, for their efforts, dedication and contribution. Achievement of our mission also depends on our students and our alumni, our research partners, communities, stakeholders and supporters. Together we have continued to develop and enhance Massey University, both as a strong national university meeting the needs of New Zealand and New Zealanders and as part of an international community of scholars. Over the past ﬁve years it has been my privilege to lead Massey University and I wish every success to Massey in the future.

This saw the first steps taken in a move towards financial sustainability by the end of 2009, when it is expected that a 3% return on revenue will be reached. The net operating surplus for the University for the 2007 year, before one-off items, was $4.1 million, which compares to the budgeted loss of $1.3 million and the 2006 (IFRS adjusted) loss of $1.6 million. This is a significant turnaround, which required whole-hearted commitment from senior management and a very significant effort by the entire University. The consolidated result for the year inclusive of IFRS adjustments was $9.1 million, but as noted above, this does not reflect the ongoing operating surplus of $4.1 million. There is still a considerable gap of $7.3 million between the $4.1 million operating surplus and the 3% target of around $11.4 million (based on 2007 revenue). Student numbers at 19,432 fell short of the target of 19,883 equivalent full time students (EFTS) by 451 EFTS. The downturn in international enrolments continued unabated, with the pipeline effect of graduating students also affecting numbers. Domestic student numbers were on forecast, although lower than in 2006. Trends commented on in the 2006 Financial Review were also seen to be applicable to 2007; high employment affecting enrolments of extramural students and adverse demographics in the University’s traditional catchment areas for school leavers. Income Statement The University’s consolidated surplus for 2007 ($9.1 million, 2.4% of revenue) compares favourably with last year’s IFRS-adjusted loss ($1.3 million, -0.4% of revenue). This was $10.4 million better than the budgeted loss of $1.3 million, while noting the effect of one-off adjustments to the operating surplus. The loss of 451 EFTS as compared to target affected the final result, but this was alleviated by the impact of the Financial Recovery Plan. The fall in international students could have adversely affected the final result by as much as $5.5 million if swift action had not been taken. While the result, even including IFRS changes, is short of the 3% of Revenue that the Tertiary Advisory Monitoring Unit (TAMU) of the Tertiary Education Commission recommends, it is a positive step along the way to a satisfactory surplus for the 2009 year. The table below sets out several financial measures that TAMU uses to monitor the financial health of tertiary education organisations. 2007 Measure Surplus 1 TAMU Targets University Group % % % 3.0 2.5 2.4 Operating Surplus 2 1.1 1.1 Cash Cover 3 8.0 15.1 15.2 Return on Assets 4 1.0 0.9 0.9 1 Surplus as a percentage of total revenue. 2 Surplus excluding unusual items as a percentage of total revenue. 3 Liquid funds as a percentage of annual cash outgoings. 4 Surplus as a percentage of assets. 28 Major variances against the budget and last year’s performance are discussed below: 1. Total Operating Revenue Revenue increased 5.4% over 2006 and was up on budget by 3.9%. Revenue from government grants was up on budget and last year due mainly to increases in the PBRF component. This resulted from the first reassessment of research performance of all tertiary educational institutions, which showed significant improvement for Massey University. This revenue was also affected by positive performances from the other two factors of the PBRF, namely external research income and research degree completions. Inclusion of the unbudgeted Tripartite settlement also contributed to the favourable variance. Other factors affecting revenue included a lower student fee income (mainly international students), significantly higher interest income, and better contract and trading sales. The latter represents a continuation of growth in this area of the University’s activities and includes higher returns from dairying. 2. Total Cost of Operations The University budgeted for a small increase in costs for 2007 over 2006 of 1.3%. In the event, costs were reasonably well contained and the increase was 2.4%, which included the unbudgeted Tripartite settlement pay increase. This was due in large part to the efforts of all staff, led by the management team. Total staff costs were over budget by 2.7%, and above 2006 by 2.9%, partly caused by the unbudgeted Tripartite agreement. EFTS-related staff costs were over budget by 1.8% and last year by 3.7%. Contract and trading staff-related costs were over budget by 2.0% and up on 2006 by 6.6%, mainly reflecting increased volumes of research activity. 3. Employee Entitlements The additional amount to be provided for 2007 in respect of long service leave and gratuities is much smaller than prior years. This reflects the ever present factor of interest rates which have risen as compared to this time last year and a number of retirements and other resignations which has reduced the remaining commitment. 4. Income in Advance A review of research and associated projects has been undertaken and a one-off gain has been booked on the University’s accounts this year. This arises from the decision to ensure that all such projects are valued on a percentage completion approach rather than the previous more conservative approach. It has been determined that this is an adjustment under the new IFRS rules, which requires restatement of prior periods, and the 2006 year has been adjusted accordingly for comparative purposes. The effect on the 2007 year is an increase in surplus of approximately $4.2 million. Balance Sheet The University continues to have a strong balance sheet, with assets of nearly $1 billion and interest-bearing liabilities of only $25.4 million. Note that the two suspensory loans received in late 2006 have now been included in equity as a result of changes to reporting standards and on receipt of advice from the University’s advisors and auditors. 1. Working Capital As expected, this has deteriorated slightly over the year although not to the extent that was budgeted for. The budget was 0.65:1 with the actual being 1.1:1 and compared to last year of 1.1:1 (adjusted). Capital 29 expenditure was considerably lower than budget, which led to higher cash reserves being held, thereby increasing current assets. 2. Non-current Assets There have been no significant changes to non-current assets in 2007 apart from an increase in term investments, which reflects the timing of deposits moving between short-term and long-term maturities. 3. Non-current Liabilities The changes here have been in the reclassification of Suspensory Loans received from the Government in late 2006. Statement of Cashﬂows Cashflows have been better than expected. This has been due mainly to lower capital spending. Cash carried forward at the end of 2007 is $15.8 million higher than at the start of the year and $23.0 million better than budget. 1. Operating Cashflows Net operating cashflows were better than budget and 2006. This was due to a combination of additional revenue from PBRF, and interest received, partly off-set by higher payments to staff and suppliers. 2. Investing Cashflows These were significantly lower than budgeted and last year. The timing of withdrawals or deposits of longer-term investments does have an effect on this area but overall has no net effect on the University’s total cash position and is solely a timing issue. The main area for lower out-flows was the much smaller capital expenditure for the year. There were some moves made to reduce or delay capital expenditure, but the lack of large projects being initiated was the main driver. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) This financial year is the first that is wholly under the new set of standards. 2006 was a transitional year, which was primarily reported on under NZ GAAP and then translated to NZ IFRS. The process has been a costly exercise which has not added any value for readers of the University’s financial statements. Indeed, it may actually impede the easy understanding of the results by adding additional notes and commentary that appear to serve very little purpose. An article by the Auditor-General, Mr Kevin Brady, in the November 2007 issue of the New Zealand Chartered Accountants Journal concluded: “If real changes are not made to the current process, soon, in my view, there will be increasing calls for separate financial reporting standards for public benefit entities that better meet the needs of these entities and their users” (Reproduced by permission). This is an area that needs more debate and discussion and will be of interest to the University, as a public benefit entity, in the years ahead. 30 Conclusion Massey University has had a satisfactory financial recovery year in 2007. The small operating surplus was a good turnaround from the loss in 2006, an improvement on the original budget, and marks the first steps on the way back to an appropriate return on revenue. Further aspects of the Financial Recovery Plan will be implemented in 2008 and 2009 to ensure that the University continues to be able to reinvest in students, staff and facilities. T.

The Auditor-General has appointed me, David Walker, using the staff and resources of Audit New Zealand to carry out the audit of the financial statements and statement of service performance of the University and group, on his behalf, for the year ended 31 December 2007. Qualiﬁed Opinion – Our work was limited because land and buildings were not revalued to fair value at 31 December 2007 As stated in the accounting policies, the University recognises its land and buildings at fair value. The New Zealand Equivalent to International Accounting Standard No.16 Property, Plant and Equipment (NZ IAS 16) requires entities that recognise land and buildings at fair value to carry out revaluations with sufficient regularity to ensure that revalued land and buildings are not included at a value that is materiality different to fair value. The University engaged an independent valuer to consider and analyse the indicative movement in the fair value of the University’s land and buildings over the period since they were last revalued. The valuer’s report provides indicated percentage ranges in valuation movement based on published indices and market land inflation information. These percentages indicate that there is likely to have been a material increase in the value of land and buildings. However, the University has not carried out a revaluation and we are unable to determine the amount of the required adjustment. In our opinion: • Except for the effect of the departure from NZ IAS 16 as outlined above, the financial statements of the University and group on pages 37 to 71: - comply with generally accepted accounting practice in New Zealand; and - fairly reflect the University and group’s financial position as at 31 December 2007. In our opinion: • The financial statements of the University and group on pages 37 to 71 fairly reflect the results of operations and cash flows for the year ended 31 December 2007; and • The performance information of the University and group on pages 72 to 150 fairly reflects its service performance achievements measured against the performance targets adopted for the year ended on that date. The audit was completed on 30 April 2008, and is the date at which our opinion is expressed. 34 The basis of our opinion is explained below. In addition, we outline the responsibilities of the Council and the Auditor, and explain our independence. Basis of Opinion We carried out the audit in accordance with the Auditor-General’s Auditing Standards, which incorporate the New Zealand Auditing Standards. However, the scope of our work was limited because land and buildings were not revalued. We planned and performed the audit to obtain all the information and explanations we considered necessary in order to obtain reasonable assurance that the financial statements and statement of service performance did not have material misstatements whether caused by fraud or error. Material misstatements are differences or omissions of amounts and disclosures that would affect a reader’s overall understanding of the financial statements and statement of service performance. We are unable to determine whether there are material misstatements in relation to land and buildings that were not revalued because the scope of our work was limited, as we referred to in our opinion. The audit involved performing procedures to test the information presented in the financial statements and statement of service performance. We assessed the results of those procedures in forming our opinion. Audit procedures generally include: • determining whether significant financial and management controls are working and can be relied on to produce complete and accurate data; • verifying samples of transactions and account balances; • performing analyses to identify anomalies in the reported data; • reviewing significant estimates and judgements made by the Council; • confirming year-end balances; • determining whether accounting policies are appropriate and consistently applied; and • determining whether all financial statement disclosures are adequate. We did not examine every transaction, nor do we guarantee complete accuracy of the financial statements and statement of service performance. We evaluated the overall adequacy of the presentation of information in the financial statements and statement of service performance. We did not obtain all the information and explanations we required because land and buildings were not revalued, as explained above. Responsibilities of the Council and the Auditor The Council is responsible for preparing financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice in New Zealand. Those financial statements must fairly reflect the financial position of the University and group as at 31 December 2007. They must also fairly reflect the results of operations and cash flows for the year ended on that date. The Council is also responsible for preparing performance information that fairly reflects the service performance achievements for the year ended 31 December 2007. The Council’s responsibilities arise from the Education Act 1989 and the Crown Entities Act 2004. 35 We are responsible for expressing an independent opinion on the financial statements and statement of service performance and reporting that opinion to you. This responsibility arises from section 15 of the Public Audit Act 2001 and the Crown Entities Act 2004. Independence When carrying out the audit we followed the independence requirements of the Auditor General, which incorporate the independence requirements of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of New Zealand. In addition to the audit we have carried out an assignment in the following area: • auditing the Chief Executive Officer’s declaration on the Performance Based Research Fund external research income. This is compatible with those independence requirements. Other than the audit and this assignment, we have no relationship with or interests in the University or any of its subsidiaries.

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Crown Entity Act 2004 and Section 220 of the Education Act 1989. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with NZ GAAP. They comply with New Zealand equivalents to IFRS, and other applicable financial reporting standards, as appropriate for public benefit entities. This is the first set of financial statements prepared using NZ IFRS, and comparatives for the year ended 31 December 2006 have been restated to NZ IFRS accordingly. Reconciliations of equity and net surplus/(deficit) for the year ended 31 December 2006 under NZ IFRS to balances reported in 31 December 2006 financial statements are detailed in note 34. The accounting policies set out below have been applied consistently to all periods presented in these financial statements and in preparing an opening NZ IFRS balance sheet as at 1 January 2006 for the purposes of the transition to NZ IFRS. Massey University is not aware of any material adjustment as a result of new standards coming into effect in 2007. Massey University has not adopted any standards that have been issued but are not yet effective. Massey University comprises the following areas of significant activity for teaching, research and community service: Colleges of • Business • Creative Arts • Education • Humanities and Social Sciences • Sciences. The group consists of Massey University and its subsidiaries, Creative Campus Enterprises Limited (100% owned), Massey University Foundation (100% owned), Massey Ventures Limited (100% owned), and Estendart Limited and E Centre Limited (both 100% owned by Massey Ventures Limited). New Zealand School of Music Limited is 50% owned. Massey University (and its subsidiaries) was established as a tertiary education provider and researcher. Accordingly, Massey University (and its subsidiaries) have designated themselves as public benefit entities. All applicable public benefit entity exemptions have been adopted. All the above-mentioned companies have a balance date of 31 December. 37 Measurement Base The financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis, modified by the revaluation of certain property, plant and equipment. Accounting Policies The following accounting policies which materially affect the measurement of financial performance and financial position have been applied. 1. Basis of Consolidation The Consolidated Financial Statements are prepared from the financial statements of the University and all subsidiaries as at 31 December 2007 using the purchase method. Corresponding assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and cashflows are added together on a line-by-line basis. Any joint venture the University has an interest in is accounted for using the proportionate method of consolidation. Massey University accounts for an investment in an associate in the group financial statement using the equity method. 2. Budget Figures The budget figures are those approved by the Council at the beginning of the financial year. The budget figures have been prepared in accordance with NZIFRS and are consistent with the accounting policies adopted by the Council for the preparation of the financial statements. 3. Allocation of Overheads Administrative and indirect teaching and research costs are allocated to significant activities on the basis of total equivalent full-time students (EFTS) in each college. Exceptions to this rule are allocated on the following basis: (i) regional facilities management – by floor space (ii) Recreation Centre – by internal full-time students (iii) student services – by internal equivalent full-time students (iv) annual leave – by general staff numbers for general staff and from academic department leave records for academic staff. 4. Revenues Government grants are recognised as income on entitlement. Student fees are recognised as income on entitlement. Trust funds, including donations of a capital nature, are recognised as income when money is received, or entitlement to receive money is established. Income for research that is externally funded is recognised in the Cost of Services Summary (see note 3) as “Charges for services” on a percentage of completion basis. Research funds relating to incomplete portions of externally funded research activities at year end are included in the balance sheet as “Receipts in advance”. 38 5. Foreign Currencies Both the functional and presentation currency of Massey University and its subsidiaries is New Zealand dollars, rounded to the nearest thousand dollars. Translations in foreign currencies are initially recorded in the functional currency at the exchange rate ruling at the date of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rate of exchange ruling at the balance sheet date. 6. Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents represent funds held to meet short-term commitments and include cash in hand, deposits held at call with the bank, other short-term highly liquid investments and bank overdrafts. Bank overdrafts are shown within borrowings in current liabilities in the balance sheet. 7. Trade and Other Receivables Trade and other receivables are initially measured at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less any provision for impairment. 8. Inventories Inventories are valued at the lower of cost (using the first-in first-out basis) or net realisable value. All consumables are charged direct to expenditure. 9. Biological Assets Biological assets are valued at fair value less estimated point of sale costs, and agricultural produce is valued at fair value less estimated point-of-sale costs at point of harvest. All consumables are charged direct to expenditure. 10. Property Plant and Equipment (i) Valuation Asset Category Valuation By Frequency Last Valuation Land and buildings Quotable Value New Zealand Triennially 1 January 2006 Leasehold improvements Valued at historical cost Equipment and furniture Valued at historical cost Computers and research Valued at historical cost equipment Motor vehicles Valued at historical cost Aircraft Valued at historical cost Library collection Valued at historical cost Land is valued at fair value on the basis of highest and best use. Buildings (which include land improvements and reticulated services) are valued at depreciated replacement cost on the basis of highest and best use. 39 Land and buildings were valued by Kerry Stewart FNZIV, FPINZ of Quotable Value New Zealand Limited. Additions between valuations are recorded at cost. Capital work in progress is valued on the basis of expenditure incurred and certified gross progress claim certificates up to balance date. The level at which individual assets are capitalised as property plant and equipment is $2,000. (ii) Depreciation The depreciation rates used in the preparation of these statements are as follows: Asset Class Buildings Leasehold improvements Equipment and furniture Computers and research equipment Motor vehicles Aircraft Library collection (current use) Depreciation Rate 15 to 100 years 10% 5%–33% 25% 20%–25% 6% 10% Method Straight line Straight line Straight line Straight line Straight line Straight line Straight line Land, permanently retained library collections, art collections and archives are not depreciated. Leasehold improvements are depreciated based upon their estimated useful life and the term of lease. Work in progress is not depreciated. The total cost of a project is transferred to the relevant asset class upon completion and then depreciated. (iii) Crown-owned Assets Crown owned land and buildings used by Massey University are included as part of Massey University’s fixed assets. These were first recognised on 31 December 1989. Although legal title has not been transferred, Massey University has assumed all the normal risks and rewards of ownership. (iv) Impairment The carrying values of property plant and equipment are reviewed for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. Massey University has three cash-generating units, being the three main campuses. Impairment of property plant and equipment is recognised when: 11. • replacement cost is identified as less than net book value • the carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount • items of property plant and equipment become obsolete • damage occurs to property plant and equipment. Employee Entitlements Annual leave for academic and general staff has been accrued. In addition, an accrual has been made for retirement gratuities for both academic and general staff and long-service leave for general staff. Both retirement gratuities and long-service leave have been accrued on the following basis. 40 • Leave and gratuities that have vested in the employee (an entitlement has been established) have been measured at nominal value using remuneration rates current at reporting date. This is included as a current liability. • Leave and gratuities that have not yet vested in the employee (no entitlement has been established) have been measured using the present value measurement basis, which discounts expected future cash outflows. This is treated as a non-current liability. Duty leave overseas for academic staff has not been accrued as this leave is a commitment subject to eligibility and is not an entitlement. Sick leave has not been accrued as the University has a “Wellness Policy”, hence no sick leave is available to carry forward. Obligations for contributions to superannuation schemes are accounted for as defined contribution schemes and are recognised as an expense in the statement of financial performance. 12. Goods and Services Tax (GST) The financial statements are prepared on a GST exclusive basis, with the exception of accounts receivable and accounts payable. 13. Taxation Tertiary education institutions are exempt from the payment of income tax as they are treated by the Inland Revenue Department as charitable organisations. Accordingly, no charge for income tax has been provided for. Massey University’s subsidiaries are also exempt from paying income tax. 14. Leases Finance leases effectively transfer to Massey University substantially all the risks and benefits incidental to ownership of the leased item. These are capitalised at the lower of fair value of the asset or the present value of the minimum lease payments. The leased assets and corresponding lease liabilities are disclosed and the leased assets are depreciated over the period Massey University is expected to benefit from their use. Operating lease payments, where the lessor effectively retains substantially all the risks and benefits of ownership of the leased items, are included in the determination of the operating profit in equal instalments over the lease term. 15. Financial Instruments Massey University classifies its financial assets into the following categories: financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, loans and receivables, and financial assets at fair value through equity. Management determines the classification of its investments at initial recognition and re-evaluates this designation every reporting date. Financial assets are initially measured at fair value, with any transaction costs being expensed immediately. The fair value of financial instruments traded in an active market is based on quoted market prices as at balance date. The quoted market price used is the current mid price. The category of financial assets is: financial assets at fair value through profit and loss. A financial asset is classified in this category if acquired principally for the purpose of selling in the short term. Assets in this 41 category are classified as current assets if they are expected to be realised within 12 months of balance date. Financial assets in this category include Massey University Foundation’s managed fund . Loan and receivables. These are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. After initial recognition they are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Loans to third parties and receivables are classified as trade and other receivables in the balance sheet. Bank deposits with a maturity of more than 3 months are classified as other financial assets. Financial assets at fair value through equity. Financial assets at fair value through equity are those financial assets that are not classified in either of the above categories. This category encompasses shares held for strategic purposes. After initial recognition these investments are measured at their fair value. Massey University’s investment in its subsidiary and associate companies is held at cost. At the end of each financial year Massey University assesses whether there is any impairment of its financial assets; any impairment is written off to expenses in the Income Statement. Borrowings Borrowings are initially recognised at their fair value. After initial recognition, all borrowings are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. 16. Trade and Other Payables Trade and other payables are carried at amortised cost. Due to their short-term nature they are not discounted. They represent liabilities for goods and services provided to Massey University prior to the end of the financial year that are unpaid, and arise when Massey University becomes obliged to make future payments in respect of the purchase of these goods and services. The amounts are unsecured and usually paid within 30 days of recognition. 17. Borrowing Costs Borrowing costs are recognised as an expense in the period in which they are incurred. 18. Investment Property Any property held that is not held to meet service delivery objectives is classified as investment property. Investment property is measured initially at its cost, including transaction costs. After recognition, Massey University measures all investment property at fair value as determined annually by Kerry Stewart of Quotable Value New Zealand Limited. Gains or losses arising from a change in fair value of an investment property are recognised in the Income Statement. 19. Joint Ventures A joint venture is a contractual arrangement whereby two parties undertake an economic activity that is subject to joint control. For a jointly controlled entity Massey University recognises in its financial statements assets it controls, the liabilities and expenses it incurs, and the share of income that it earns from the joint venture. 42 INCOME STATEMENT for the year ended 31 December 2007 University Budget 2007 ($000) Notes Government grants Consolidated Actual 2007 ($000) Actual 2006 ($000) Actual 2007 ($000) Actual 2006 ($000) 1, 3 149,069 160,548 149,791 162,999 151,802 Student fees 3 116,435 107,816 111,103 108,833 111,951 Interest 3 2,823 6,274 4,086 6,244 4,370 Charges for services 3 90,151 95,476 88,751 96,908 89,753 3, 24 1,655 2,972 1,773 2,972 1,775 3, 4 -

These liabilities are estimated in respect of their incidents according to assumed rates of death, disablement, resignation and retirement allowing for assumed rates of salary progression. Of these assumptions, the discount, salary progression and resignation rates are most important. The projected cashflow is then discounted back to the valuation date at the valuation discounted rates. Discount rates range from 7.43% to 5.72% for nine years and beyond (2006: 6.35% to 5.42%). Salary progression allows for a 2.75% increase per year (2006: 2.75%). The demographic assumptions were based on the experience of the Government Superannuation Fund. 58 21.

Post Balance Date Events There are no significant post balance date events (2006: nil). 31. Financial Instrument Risks Massey University has a series of policies to manage risks associated with financial instruments. Massey University is risk averse and seeks to minimise exposure from Treasury activities. Massey University has established Councilapproved liability management and investment policies. These policies do not allow any transactions that are speculative in nature to be entered into. Market Risk Credit Risk Credit risk is the risk that a third party will default on its obligation to Massey University, causing Massey University to incur a loss. Massey University has no significant concentrations of credit risk as it has a large number of credit customers, mainly students. Massey University invests funds only in deposits with registered banks, and its investment policy limits the amount of credit exposure to any one bank. Investment funds are spread over a number of banks and vary between short and long term. Maximum exposures to credit risk at balance date are: University Consolidated 2007 2006 2007 2006 ($000) ($000) ($000) ($000) Bank deposits 65,043 58,268 66,683 59,548 Receivables and prepayments 23,986 27,938 25,387 29,482 3,178 2,930 2,632 2,740 Investments – shares The above maximum exposures are net of any recognised provision for losses on these financial instruments. No collateral is held on the above amounts. Liquidity Risk Liquidity risk is the risk that Massey University will encounter difficulty raising funds to meet commitments as they fall due. Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash and ensuring the availability of funding through an adequate amount of committed credit facilities. Massey University aims to maintain flexibility in funding by keeping committed credit lines available. 66 Massey University aims at having a minimum cash holding of $20million, together with the availability of undrawn facilities of $30million. Massey University manages its borrowings in accordance with its funding and financial polices. The maturity profiles of Massey University’s interest-bearing investments are disclosed in note 14. Currency Risk Currency risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument will fluctuate due to changes in foreign exchange rates. Massey University minimises this risk over expenditure by holding funds in the major currencies that it does business in, in foreign currency accounts. The amount on deposit is determined by the amount that is expected to be incurred against that currency over the next 12 months. Holdings of foreign currencies are disclosed in note 10. Where a one-off major capital expense involving foreign currency is identified, then a review of current trends and amount held in that currency is undertaken. If appropriate, then forward cover may be undertaken. Interest Rate Risks The interest rates on Massey University’s investments are disclosed in note 14 and borrowings note 19. Fair value interest rate risk Fair value interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value of a financial instrument will fluctuate due to changes in market rates. Massey University is limited by statute in its ability to manage this risk. If interest rates on investments had fluctuated by plus or minus 0.5%, the effect would have been to increase/decrease the surplus by $420,000. Interest rates on borrowings are fixed and not subject to fluctuation for the duration of the fixed maturity chosen. Cashflow Interest Rate Risk Cashflow interest rate risk is the risk that cashflows from a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market rates. Borrowings and investments made at variable interest rate risk expose Massey University to cashflow interest rate risk. Apart from some deposits at call for liquidity purposes, Massey University does not have any variable interest rates. Other Price Risk Other Price risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument will fluctuate as a result of market changes in market price. Massey University does not hold any other financial instruments of significance subject to this risk. 32. Critical Accounting Estimates and Assumptions In preparing the financial statements Massey University has made estimates and assumptions concerning the future. These estimates and assumptions may differ from the subsequent actual results. Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations or future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. There were no estimates or assumptions that will have a significant impact on the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year. 67 33. Critical Judgements in Applying Massey University Accounting Policies Management has exercised the following critical judgements in applying Massey University policies for the year ended 31 December 2007. Impairment of Trade Receivables Trade debtors have been reviewed fully and impairments provided as necessary. Impairment of Property Plant and Equipment When considering whether any impairment of property plant and equipment existed, the cash-generating unit for Massey University is taken to be at campus level. At balance date a review was undertaken and no impairments were disclosed. Long-service Leave and Retirement Gratuities In order to assess Massey University’s liability in respect of long-service leave and retirement gratuities, an actuarial report was prepared by Eriksens Actuarial in accordance with NZ IAS 19. (Refer to Note 20 for assumptions). 34. Transition to NZ IFRS Massey University’s financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2007 are the first financial statements that comply with NZ IFRS. Massey University has applied NZ IFRS in preparing these financial statements. Massey University’s transition date is 1 January 2006. Massey University prepared its opening NZ IFRS balance sheet at that date. The reporting date of these financial statements is 30 December 2007. Massey NZ IFRS adoption date is 1 January 2007. In preparing these consolidated financial statements in accordance with NZ IFRS 1, Massey University has applied the mandatory exceptions and certain optional exemptions from full retrospective applications of NZ IFRS. Massey University has applied the business combination exemptions in NZ IFRS 1. It has not restated business combinations that took place prior to the 1 January 2006 transition date. Massey University elected to apply deemed cost to all classes of property, plant and equipment, except for land and building, which it will continue to value as required.

Investment property is valued each December at current market value. 2 Biological assets include forestry, which is valued each December at fair value by a valuer. Forestry was previously shown under property plant and equipment, hence the opening balance in 2005 of $410. 3 On the date of transition the University had land and buildings revalued, resulting in the large shift from GAAP to IFRS in January 2006. 4 Under GAAP investment property was maintained under Property Plant and Equipment in 2006 and depreciated accordingly; under IFRS the depreciation on investment property was reversed. 5 During 2006 a forward cover contract to purchase US$3,000,000 was entered into by Massey University. This contract was fair valued at the end of December 2006. 6 In late 2006 TEC paid Massey University $9,475,000. Under GAAP this was treated as an interest-free term loan, but under IFRS it has been moved to equity. 7 In late 2006 a long-term term rental was entered into. Due to the long duration of the lease the revenue of $10,000 has been added back, annualising the income in line with Massey University’s financial year. 8 Research income in advance was adjusted due to the amended policy that resulted from the adoption of IFRS. 71 MASSEY UNIVERSITY MISSION (Excerpt from the Massey University Charter) 1.1 Massey University is committed to meeting the needs of New Zealand and New Zealanders, enhancing access to university study for diverse populations, preparing students for life-long learning, and meeting international standards of excellence in research and teaching.

STATEMENT OF SERVICE PERFORMANCE PERFORMANCE REVIEW The Massey University Profile 2007 – 2009 states specific performance indicators and measures under each of the University’s eight primary aim headings. These are reported on in the Statement of Service Performance. The Appendices provide additional information and detail on the University’s profile. PRIMARY AIM HEADINGS The eight primary aims of Massey University are: • Research and Creative Works • Teaching and Learning • Treaty of Waitangi • Students • Staff • The University and the Wider Community • Internationalisation • Organisation and Management. Goals and objectives stated at the beginning of each primary aim section are excerpts from the Massey University 10 Year Plan (Strategic Plan). 72 RESEARCH AND CREATIVE WORKS GOALS 1. To advance the reputation and performance of Massey University as a research university of international standing. 2. To strengthen our contribution to New Zealand’s economic, social and cultural advancement, through excellent, accessible and relevant research, scholarship and creative work. OBJECTIVES 1. To encourage research, scholarship and creative work in the University’s chosen disciplines in the pursuit of academic excellence and to recognise and reward outstanding achievement. 2. To build the overall research capability of the University by : • ensuring all campuses and colleges attain and maintain a high proportion of staff who are research active and qualified doctorally or with the appropriate terminal degree for the discipline • providing researchers with infrastructure and support of international standard • identifying and nurturing new or emerging areas of research, relevant to our overall strategy • promoting collaborative arrangements, innovative research, and technology transfer aimed at improving the economic performance, social well-being and sustainable development of our regions and New Zealand • measuring research excellence, relevance and accessibility through regular, systematic benchmarking against national priorities and international standards • placing a high priority on the commercialisation of intellectual property and the growth of external research funding from government, industry and international sources • increasing the numbers of students undertaking postgraduate research programmes and the level of scholarship and other support available to them • placing a greater emphasis on the professional development of staff who are able to lead and direct research programmes and research teams and on staff who are willing to work in collaborative research teams • establishing at an international standard, four to five Centres of Research Excellence, and to establish at a national standard, six to ten Centres of Research Excellence • ensuring that all research is conducted to the University’s protocols and ethical standards • augmenting and enhancing research into all aspects of the environment, across a range of disciplines. PERFORMANCE 2007 Massey University’s ongoing commitment to focus excellence in research and creative works and researchteaching has been acknowledged through the latest national Performance-Based Research Funding (PBRF) round, in which we achieved the third highest number of research-active staff in the sector, ranked in the top three in 13 subject areas, were one of the two universities to improve its national institutional ranking, and came second in showing the greatest improvement in institution quality score. The second major research success was marked by the opening of Manawatu Microscopy and Imaging Centre (MMIC), which was opened by the Prime Minister in August 2007. The University received $1.5 million from the Innovation and Development Fund for the establishment of the centre. 73 Another highlight for 2007 was the announcement by the Government in June that there was only one addition to the existing national Centres of Research Excellence – the Riddet Centre hosted by Massey University. New Zealand’s food industry will be a major recipient of innovation generated from this centre. This reflects the University’s commitment to world-class research in pursuit of economic development. Our commitment to growing our research capability has been recognised in the University’s Investment Plan (developed in 2007), with three key initiatives focusing on research and commercialisation. Over the next three years the University is committed to extending its research focus on business and land-based disciplines and continuing to build capability in areas that contribute to New Zealand’s economic and social growth. The inclusion of these initiatives in the University’s strategic planning documents provides guidance and direction for the coming years.

Other highlights of initiatives focused on Research & Creative Works: The University’s Animal Welfare Science and Bioethics Centre has been named a collaborating centre of the OIE, the World Organisation for Animal Health, and will provide expert scientific, bioethical and educational advice for the OIE and its 169 member countries. The Centre is the first in New Zealand to be acknowledged as a collaborating centre, and the only collaborating partner with a sole focus on animal welfare. The Centre provides practical, science-based and ethical advice, education and solutions to animal welfare problems and for bioethical analysis and education. The University’s Centre for Mobile Computing was officially launched in Auckland in June. The mission of the Centre is to engage in leading-edge research to enhance New Zealand’s capability in mobile computing. This formalises the initiatives of researchers in the Institute of Information and Mathematical Sciences at the Auckland campus, who have taken the lead in building New Zealand’s capability in mobile computing. The Solexa Genome Analysis system was launched by the Minister for Research, Science and Technology, the Hon. Steve Maharey, on Friday, 5 October 2007, at the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution on the Palmerston North campus. This is a next-generation DNA sequencer, which will enable scientists to analyse DNA 100 times faster than previously. The Solexa and the existing ABI3730 sequencer are complementary, and will allow almost all projects requiring nextgeneration sequencing to take place within New Zealand. The Solexa is intended to become an accredited facility, the only one in the Southern Hemisphere, and provides an opportunity to attract clients from across Australasia. A joint initiative between Massey University and Landcare Research has resulted in the appointment of the first joint professorial research fellowship. Landcare Research principal scientist Surinder Saggar has been appointed Professor of Environmental Sciences. Professor Saggar’s area of expertise includes agricultural greenhouse gas emissions, including mitigation, soil organic matter and nutrient cycling. 79 The following collaborative research contracts have been secured: • the Longitudinal Study, in partnership with Auckland University and Victoria University of Wellington • Healthy Eating – Healthy Action (HEHA), in partnership with Otago University, Auckland University of Technology and Victoria University of Wellington • Manu Ao, a Te Kahui Amokura sponsored universities-wide Mäori staff consortium • Ngäti Awa evaluation • a blues skies research project in whänau communication with the Families Commission.

PERFORMANCE 2007 Massey University makes a major contribution to accessible research-based university education in New Zealand, both in its own right and in partnership with other institutions nationally and internationally. This contribution reflects both our mission and special character. The breadth of academic programmes offered, specialist areas, and flexible delivery options mean we offer an integrated portfolio of qualifications relevant to the New Zealand environment. As an institution that prides itself on being student-centred, qualifications are available to students through arrangements that suit their location and circumstances, and that can be accommodated alongside their family and employment commitments. During 2007 the University consolidated plans and strategies within the new Investment Plan (Profile). Distance education and e-learning were identified as two of the University’s nine strategic priorities, and the appointment of Directors in each area will ensure implementation of initiatives and the achievement of specified outcomes. The University continued its commitment to networks of provision in 2007 with the ongoing development and implementation of positioning strategies for each campus and extramural. Strategic dialogue with other providers in the Auckland and Wellington regions also continued with the participation of the respective Deputy Vice-Chancellors. Massey University is very proud to host Ako Aotearoa (the National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence), which was launched on 1 November 2007 at the Wellington campus. Internal support for teaching innovation and excellence continues through the University’s Fund for Innovation and Excellence in Teaching (FIET), a variety of award programmes, and the yearly Vice-Chancellor’s Symposium, which celebrated “The Magic of Teaching” in 2007. The University’s success with two awards in the National Tertiary Teaching Excellence Awards 81 also demonstrates the strength of teaching at Massey. The University’s SECAT (Standard Evaluation of Course, Administration and Teaching) scores have also continued to improve during 2007. Systems and processes for quality assurance within the learning and teaching environment continue to evolve through regular strategic reviews and the development of data and information systems. During 2007, 14 reviews spanning 31 qualifications were carried out in accordance with the University’s Qualification Review Procedures. Significant progress was also made on the development of systems for high-level analyses of student academic achievement, evaluation of teaching quality, and appropriate and effective assessment practices remain key areas of focus with University-wide initiatives ongoing.

Improvements to the national survey process are expected to be implemented from 2009. There has been limited progress on the implementation of the teaching evaluation redevelopment goals. However, the development of a flexible online survey tool is the subject of a multi-university funding proposal submitted to the TEC. The University participated in a pilot of the Student Engagement Survey, which is being run by the Australian Council for Education Research.

The university is engaged in leading three significant governmentfunded projects that will result in enhanced e-learning delivery. These are: the e-learning Guideliines project, the Professional Development in e-learning project and the e-learning Management Resources project. Each of these projects will contribute to the integration of new technologies within the Massey curriculum. Two part-time teaching fellowship positions have been established to support the integration of eLearning across the University. Work has commenced on the development of the [email protected] web portal to enhance instructional design and quality assurance of extramural materials. The use of Adobe Connect for extramural students and the Wimba Voice Tools for language students has been a successful integration of new technologies.

Overall, the and sharing of best FIET fund has sponsored close to 250 projects in its 14-year history. practice. Massey’s success in the National Tertiary Teaching Excellence Awards demonstrate the strength of teaching at Massey. For the last three years, Massey has won two national awards each year (100% strike rate). The most recent winners were Dr Tracy Riley and Dr Bryan Walpert. A key factor in this success is the encouragement given by the ViceChancellor through the promotion of the annual Vice-Chancellor’s Teaching Excellence Awards and the work of the Teaching Excellence Committee and the programmes and support provided by the consultants of CADeL. B21 Continue to deliver Achieved – ongoing professional development Highlights: programmes for T & L A comprehensive services optimisation project is underway that will staff and also establish facilitate the definition of functions and development opportunities. a comprehensive staff development plan that reflects the University’s changing requirements. Massey’s Training & Development Unit (TDU) runs about 100 courses over the year, attended by about 2,000 participants. There have been fewer offerings this year because of the change of focus of the TDU, which has concentrated more on individual consultancy and working with small groups in targeted areas. This reflects a maturing of the level of staff capability and the lower numbers of new staff coming into the university. Other highlights of initiatives focused Ako Aotearoa, the $20 million national tertiary teaching excellence on Teaching & Learning centre headed by Massey, was formally launched on the Wellington campus on 1 November 2007. Dr Peter Coolbear took up his appointment as the Director of the Centre. Preparation has begun for the University’s fourth academic audit, which will be conducted in 2008. The audit will be University-wide and scoped according to the Investment Plan. Ongoing implementation of the Unsatisfactory Academic Progress regulations has resulted in a decline in the number of students being excluded from the University. 89 The Teaching and Learning Committee progressed the development of an assessment policy, scheduled for completion in 2008. Information on student academic achievement in papers has now been delivered via a multi-year spreadsheet that presents pass rates and grade distributions for various aspects of the student demographic. Use of the plagiarism detection product, TurnItIn, has steadily expanded since it was piloted, with all colleges now utilising the software in selected papers.

OBJECTIVES • To achieve full Mäori participation across the University, including governance and management. • To increase enrolment of Mäori undergraduate and postgraduate students. • To achieve greater academic success by, and retention of, Mäori undergraduate and postgraduate students. • To increase the proportion of Mäori staff. • To use the Mäori language appropriately across the University. • To foster mutual regard for, and understanding of, academic knowledge and customary Mäori knowledge. • To establish effective consultation mechanisms with Mäori both internally and external to the University. • To ensure that the University has teaching programmes relevant to the aspirations of Mäori in both content and delivery. • To encourage research into broad issues of Mäori development including policy, resource and community development. • To enable Mäori students to develop dual competencies, thereby adding value to academic programmes and facilitating greater Mäori participation in te reo Mäori and society generally. PERFORMANCE 2007 In 2007, the University continued to implement the Mä[email protected] Strategy. Many initiatives moved into the important maintenance phase of development to imbed recommended practices into Massey’s processes. For example: • there was a focus on supporting Mäori postgraduate students through workshops and writing retreats • further research was conducted with Mäori postgraduate students and Mäori undergraduate students new to Massey to explore trends and patterns in student participation • scholarships supporting Mäori academic achievement were maintained, with 30 students successfully completing their course of study, enabling them to graduate • the Mäori Communications Strategy continued to profile Massey in Mäori-focused publications, building both the Mäori research and teaching reputation of Massey • throughout the year the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Mäori) actively participated in a range of government activities, including offering advice to Te Puni Kökiri in relation to whänau development and Mäori Futures, to the Ministry of Education on the Futures Programme, and the Families Commission. 92 In addition, new initiatives were supported, including the following: • Te Mata o Te Tau, The Academy of Mäori Research and Scholarship, was the co-ordinating body for ManuAo Mäori Academic Network across universities in Aotearoa, this was an New Zealand Vice-Chancellor’s Committee (NZVCC) and Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) supported initiative. Manu-Ao encourages collaboration and capability building for Mäori academic staff. A successful series of events, including regular cross-university seminars, canvassed the range of Mäori research developments across the universities • In conjunction with the Office of the DVC (Academic) and the Information Technology Services (ITS), statistical tools showing retention rates were developed • On the Wellington Campus a new Senior Manager (Mäori) was appointed and a new whänau room with dedicated study facilities was opened • A new strategy, Kia Maia, to progress Mäori development at Massey was approved. The new Tertiary Education Strategy 2007-2012 signalled a refocusing of the tertiary education sector and highlighted the importance of achieving for Mäori. To demonstrate Massey’s commitment to this direction, a strategy Kia Maia: Key Initiatives for a Mäori Academic Investment Agenda, the next iteration of the Mä[email protected] Massey Strategy, was developed. The broad aims of Kia Maia are to align Massey University capabilities with full Mäori participation in Te Ao Mäori and in a knowledge-based society, and to contribute to Mäori capacity building through teaching, research, and knowledge transfer. Building on the Massey distinctiveness – as evidenced by its Mäori student profile, modes and sites of delivery, Mäori content in academic programmes, the range of applied programmes and Mäori research capability – four investment goals have been identified: • investments in quality academic outcomes for Mäori • investments in Mäori professional capability • investments in research-led Mäori transformations • investments in Mäori engagement. The four investment goals have been given priority because of their potential to significantly enhance Massey University’s contribution and to accelerate action where progress is both needed and possible. KIA MAIA highlights the areas where the University will make significant investments over the five-year period 2008 – 2012 and contains new initiatives for the three years 2008 – 2010.

PERFORMANCE 2007 Massey University is committed to providing a quality working environment and conditions that encourage all staff to flourish. The destiny of the University will be determined by the leadership and achievements of our academic and support staff. The quality and commitment of staff members are the basis of the quality of the University’s qualifications and research outputs and the excellence of its teaching delivery. We are committed to implementing future-focused professional development programmes for staff. The University’s research capability continues to strengthen, and this is reflected in the qualification profile of our academic staff. The percentage of Massey’s full-time equivalent academic staff holding a doctorate qualification continues its upward trend and reached 63% (753) at the end of 2007 (up from 60% in 2006). Initiatives outlined in the “Performance Indicator” section (see E1 below) continue to support the University’s T & L and research plans and strengthen our staff profile. The annual Vice-Chancellor’s Teaching Excellence Awards signify Massey’s ongoing commitment to recognising excellence in teaching in a research-informed and research-led environment. In 2007, four staff were recognised and awarded for their commitment to excellence in teaching. Two of these Massey awardees, Dr Bryan Walpert, and Dr Tracy Riley, were nominated for National Teaching Excellence Awards for Sustained Excellence and won awards. In the six years the national awards have been operating, nine Massey staff have won awards and Massey is the most successful University in this area. A new award was introduced by the Vice-Chancellor’s Executive Committee (VCEC) in 2006. This award is for outstanding service and may be presented to any member of general staff who is deemed worthy of the honour. In 2007, three staff members have been awarded the Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Service. Please see “Performance Indicators” below for further details.

To achieve this policy objective Massey University will: (a) provide equal opportunities for recruitment, appointment, development and promotion for all current and prospective employees, regardless of sex, marital status, religious belief, colour, race, ethnic or national origin, disability, age, political opinion, employment status, family status or sexual orientation (b) develop and maintain a workplace culture that values and supports diversity (c) ensure that it provides a safe, supportive and healthy environment for all employees that is conducive to quality teaching, research and community service (d) identify and eliminate all aspects of policies and procedures and other institutional barriers that cause or perpetuate inequality in respect of the employment of any person or group of persons (e) not tolerate any form of unfair discrimination in the workplace on any ground, including sex, marital status, religious belief, colour, race, ethnic or national origin, disability, age, political opinion, employment status, family status or sexual orientation (f) promote equal employment opportunities as an integral part of University policies and practices (g) monitor, review and evaluate progress towards achieving equal employment opportunities. 121 THE UNIVERSITY AND THE WIDER COMMUNITY GOAL To be an integral, respected and favoured part of our core communities through our role as a creator and repository of knowledge, a critic and conscience of society, a guardian of culture and a source of expertise and advice. OBJECTIVES • To contribute to informed/intellectual debate in the wider community. • To serve and inform our core communities and be an integral part of those communities. • To strengthen links with the University’s graduates, particularly through the Alumni and Friends networks, recognising them, together with our current students and their families, as our primary ambassadors within the wider community. • To elevate public awareness of the pivotal role Massey University can and does play toward New Zealand’s economic, social and cultural advancement. • To develop and strengthen links with industry and the arts, professional and other sector groups, schools and other educational institutions, in a systematic manner and to mutual advantage. • To develop effective systems to support our interaction with the wider community, particularly in the areas of government relations, relationship management and public affairs. • To play a constructive part in the development and promotion of environmental awareness and best management practices in the wider community. PERFORMANCE 2007 In 2007 the University continued to strengthen its connections with its regional and national communities. The University engaged proactively through formal and informal channels on issues of importance to New Zealand, and particularly on issues facing the tertiary education sector including: delivery of distance qualifications, graduate destinations, graduating standards for teachers, whänau development, the provision of tertiary education in the Auckland region and student support. Individual staff members also made significant contributions to their respective fields, such as Professor Ian Warrington who was re-elected as the Vice-President of the International Society of Horticulture. Commercialisation and business incubators remain a crucial channel to facilitate access to research outcomes. In Auckland the e-centre incubator company Esphion developed a commercial partnership with CMC Ltd in India to launch the CMC Technology Export Centre, while the number of businesses in the Palmerston North BioCommerce Centre increased markedly over the year. Schools are a key stakeholder in our communities and engagement was enhanced throughout the year via careers advice days and seminars, open days (which attracted over 4,000 visitors over the three campuses), scholarship awards ceremonies (including the awarding of 150 High Achiever Scholarships to Year 13 students across the country), and lecture series targeted at secondary school students. The University continued to build its relationship with other tertiary providers. For example, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor engaged with the University of Auckland, Auckland Univeristy of Technology, NorthTec, Manukau Institute of Technology and the Tertiary Education Commission to discuss the provision of tertiary education in the Auckland region, the Wellington campus continues to be a key driver of the Wellington education cluster, while in Palmerston North the University continues to work with the local polytechnic, UCOL, and the city council to promote the city as a desirable student destination. 122 Each campus illustrated its commitment to its communities through key sponsorships aligned with the University’s research and teaching strengths. In Auckland these included sponsorship of the North Harbour sports awards and the National Sponsorship Awards, while in Palmerston North the campus was closely linked to the internationally acclaimed Da Vinci Machines exhibition at Te Manawa, and the University was showcased as a major player in the region at the Manawatu Business Awards. Formal links were formed with the North Shore, Rodney and Waitakere Councils and the Wellington Regional Economic Development agency. Links between Pasifika students and the University were strengthened with the opening of the new Pasifika Learning Centre at the Wellington campus, while the Wellington Te Kaiwawao set up a Kaumätua Advisory Group to work with the campus and developed a working relationship with Mäori service providers in Wellington. The dissemination and communication of research with direct relevance to our communities continues to be a primary focus. This was achieved through multiple channels and media, including through numerous public research seminars on topics as diverse as education, literacy, public health and diabetes, through to small and medium-sized business, Mäori development, to war-fighting. Significant media and public interest was generated in a wide variety of research, from social sciences and information relating to public health, to our traditional areas of knowledge generation – the land-based industries. Highlights included research by the Department of Communication and Journalism that found poor health during childhood is the number one impediment to literacy, while having friends and doing lots of physical activity were highlighted as enhancing boys’ academic success by College of Education lecturer Michael Irwin. College of Education Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor James Chapman responded to growing interest in educational achievement and called for research into why men are not entering the teaching profession and why the gap between male and female educational achievement in New Zealand is among the world’s largest. A study of the cells of 50 nuclear test veterans by Dr Al Rowland, Institute of Molecular Biosciences, which confirmed the veterans suffered genetic damaged as a result of radiation, attracted international interest as did a report from the Centre for Social and Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation that showed methamphetamine remains widely available but middle-class users may be turning away from the drug. Research into the commercial potential of taewa, Mäori potatoes, led by Nick Roskruge involved 35 schools across the country, and a study into school lunches that found only one in ten lunch boxes contains food that meets nutritional guidelines of children and that 80% of food that is thrown away is the healthy sandwiches and fruit, resonated with parents and schools across the country. Our ability to meet industry needs was exemplified by the development of an automated kiwifruit packing system by Dr Rory Flemmer for Zespri, which may solve the labour shortage problems faced by the industry and ensure consumers receive fruit exactly to their requirements, every time; by the creation of a “virtual teacher” by Dr Hossein Sarrafzadah and the Institute of Information and Mathematical Sciences, which can adapt its response to the emotional state and reactions of those at the keyboard of whom it is teaching; while an Internet search engine design by digital media specialist Mark Zeman was voted one of the world’s top 100 alternative search engines. More than 10 years of research funded by the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology resulted in breakthrough solar cell technology, and the opening of a factory by Speirs Nutritionals in Marton brought the omega-3 technology developed by the Riddet Centre closer to market. In other areas researchers were finding solutions to everyday problems, such as the sports science researchers at Auckland who developed a tiny ingestible capsule capable of measuring core body temperature, and an accelerated lambing programme which 123 found year–round lambing can work. The eruption of Mt Ruapehu enabled Dr Shane Cronin and his students to gather data to enhance their predictive models of eruptions. Our ability to generate knowledge that contributes to New Zealand’s economic, social and cultural advancement continues to be recognised externally through government and other grants. The University-based Riddet Centre, a research cluster focused on functional foods, became the country’s latest Centre for Research Excellence, and the University’s second. The Government pledged to contribute over $11 million to the New Zealand School of Music for a purpose-built home in Wellington, and the Health Research Council awarded $5.6 million for a range of public health research – a key University strength – ranging from Mäori and children’s health, spinal cord injury, sleep and mental health, to eukaryotic signature proteins. Two social research projects focusing on improving living standards and work opportunities for New Zealanders received nearly $7 million in funding from the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology, while an international study led by the Centre of Public Health Research was awarded $140,000 from the United States National Institutes of Health to investigate risk factors of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Many staff were recognised externally for their contributions to the wider community. A sample of this significant recognition included: Professor Robert Anderson, Professor David Parry, Dr Farah Palmer, Professor David Mellor and Emeritus Professor John Codd, who were honoured in the Queen’s Birthday honours; Professor Tony Vitalis, who was honoured by the New Zealand Ergonomics Society for his services to the advancement of ergonomics; Professor Robert McLachlan, who was awarded the prestigious Dahlquist prize; and Professor Peter Lockhart and Professor Paul Rainey, who were elected as fellows of the Academy of the Royal Society. The University also recognised those in its community who make or have made significant contributions: Richard Taylor, Weta Workshop; New York-based designer Rebecca Taylor; and sculptor filmmaker Len Lye (posthumously) became the inaugural inductees into the College of Creative Arts Hall of fame; Tuwharetoa chief Tumu te Heuheu received an honorary doctorate at a special ceremony at Waihi; New Zealand Olympic legend Dr Peter Snell was awarded an honorary doctorate in Palmerston North; while sculptor Paul Dibble was recognised for his contribution to the arts. An important group with whom we maintain a close relationship is our alumni. We do this via three main channels – the network of alumni chapters across the country and overseas, the Massey University Foundation, and through direct communication. In 2007 the network of regional chapters in Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington further expanded into Hawke’s Bay and Christchurch. These chapters focus on the specific interests, disciplines year groups, colleges and interests of the alumni residing in those regions. During the year each chaptered engaged in a range of activities, including evening functions, lectures, celebrations and discussions on fundraising, enabling our alumni to retain their close relationship with their university. The network of international chapters was also furthered during 2007 and there are now active chapters in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, with interest from groups to form chapters in China, India, the United States and Korea. A wide range of specific groups such as veterinarians, agriculture graduates, journalists, teachers and rugby players gathered over the year, assisted or facilitated by the alumni office. Direct communication with our alumni was enhanced in 2007 with the introduction of email newsletters containing information of interest about the university and regional chapter activities, continued improvement to the Alumni and Development web-site, refinement of the database and the range of apparel and memorabilia, as well as development of affinity incentives for former students. MASSEY magazine, which features successful alumni, was found to be well received by alumni in a readership survey. The Massey University Foundation built on the successes achieved in 2006 and towards its aim of enabling excellence in the delivery of teaching and research at the University. As well as its significant fundraising 124 activities, the foundation undertakes to facilitate visits to the University of significant international leaders. In 2007 the Foundation organised and obtained funding to support visits from Dr Peter Snell, who returned to continue his work with the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health, and to receive an honorary doctorate from the University. The Foundation enabled international curator Claire Doherty to visit Wellington to initiate work with Litmus, a research centre in the School of Fine Arts, on the development of contemporary, situational art. “One Day Sculpture”, a project unlike any historical or existing concept staged before in New Zealand, will be a cumulative series of up to 20 place-responsive artworks realised in locations across New Zealand, starting in mid-2008. The Foundation also supported the activities of the Equine Trust, the New Zealand Wildlife Health Centre Trust, and a series of reading clinics run by Professor Tom Nicholson, from the Centre of Excellence for Research on Children’s Literacy, in Auckland primary schools. The Foundation supported the activities of the Alistair Betts Memorial Trust for Agribusiness Excellence seminar series, including a competition for emerging marketers. Carol O’Sullivan, Grower Liaison Manager, Zespri International Limited, was selected from 38 entrants to attend the Advanced Marketing Management Programme at the China Europe International Business School in Shanghai, China, in August 2007.

Blow Nga hau e wha (which means four winds) started with the induction of five alumni into a new College of Creative Arts Hall of Fame. The hall will recognise students and staff who have, through art and design, made an outstanding contribution to the national economy or identity. The Hall of Fame will have a physical presence in the College’s home, the Museum Building in Buckle Street. The inaugural inductees were Richard Taylor, Director of Weta Workshop; New York-based fashion designer Rebecca Taylor; and (posthumously) sculptor and film maker Len Lye. A very successful postgraduate workshop was held in Palmerston North in October 2007 by the College of Education. In Auckland, the School of Education held a research seminar series for the public. The seminar series focused on topical issues in education such as literacy and boys’ educational achievement. 125 Conferences and seminars held during 2007 by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences included: F2 • Insulin Resistance, Diabetes & Vulnerable Populations conference • [email protected] conference • Summer Shakespeare • Literary Evenings Research Series at PN Public Library • War-fighting in a Contemporary Environment conference.

Massey University was a major sponsor of the internationally acclaimed Da Vinci Machines exhibition at Te Manawa. This exhibition provided an excellent opportunity for the university to link with its community, and particularly with local schools. The offer of 150 Massey High Achiever Scholarships (Academic, Art or Sport) to secondary schools students lifted the profile of Massey. This year’s graduation ceremonies at Palmerston North saw honorary doctorates conferred upon Dr Peter Snell, Paul Dibble and Tumu Te Heuheu. Dr Snell delivered a free public lecture during Graduation Week, May 2007. The DVC (Auckland & International), the Regional Registrar, the PVC and staff of the College of Business, and other staff visited schools in Auckland this year, in particular to present Massey academic excellence and top achiever awards.

PERFORMANCE 2007 Massey University’s international operations matured further in 2007, with several new agreements for relationship-based recruitment of groups of international students, further diversification of our international student market, hosting of a number of prominent academics from overseas universities, ongoing growth in Study Abroad and Exchange Student enrolments, developing new articulation arrangements with overseas tertiary institutions, and undertaking new international education and collaborative research initiatives. Twenty-five new memoranda of understanding or Exchange agreements were concluded in 2007, with: Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco de Los Estados Unidos Mexicanos (UJAT), Nanjing University of Technology, Eastern Illinois University, Fachhochschule München, Osaka Prefecture University, Wollongong College Auckland (Australia), Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Sugiyama Jogkuen University, European Business School, International University Schloss Reichartshausen, L’Université Blaise Pascal, Clermont II, University of Calgary, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Renmin University of China, CMC Limited (India), Shanxi College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Akademia Wychowania Fizycznego (Poland), Hebei University of Technology, Cornell University, Tokyo Kezai University, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (Thailand), Maejo University (Thailand), Clarkson University (USA), Nakhon Phanom University (Thailand), Nippon Veterinary and Life Science University, Communication University of China. 134 A cross-college mission to Malaysia in May 2007 secured a significant number of PhD enrolments among Malaysian University staff funded under the Malaysian Government scholarship scheme. The University signed a collaboration agreement with Universiti Putra Malaysia, which, like Massey has a strong grounding in Agricultural Science. The DVC (Auckland & International) continued to chair the Greater Mekong Sub-region Tertiary Education Consortium (GMSTEC) in 2007. GMSTEC is developing a business plan that will see greater academic exchange between the partners and more collaborative bidding for international research funds. Massey is engaging with GMSTEC partner King MongKuts University of Technology Thonburi on a Master of Food Science and Technology Management degree programme. Massey has continued to be the most successful university in securing funds under the Education New Zealand Export Education Innovation Programme (EEIP) in 2007. EEIP grants were awarded to the College of Sciences in relation to delivery of the Massey University Bachelor of Food Technology programme in Singapore in partnership with Singapore Polytechnic, and to the Training and Development Unit in relation to on-line learning initiatives in our teaching relationship with Wuhan University and Nanjing University of Technology. International office staff development and systems improvement continued in 2007, with an update of marketing and communications documentation, and key staff appointments. The Manager International Student Support – Policy and Compliance, now a permanent appointment, will play a key role in managing risk areas such as Fed Aid, student insurance, and policy and procedure around student support, particularly for the increasing numbers of students who need assistance with cultural adaptation. Further work was done to enhance agent support and performance management, and Massey again passed a successful audit of its USA Fed Aid administration system. The International policy and Strategy Advisory Committee met four times during the year and is now focused more on long-term internationalisation strategy. Performance Indicators Target 2007: Outcome/Progress 2007: G1 Achieved – ongoing Ensure our qualification review process appropriately recognises that contextual content (rather than nationally specific), assessment and assignments are relevant to the needs and interests of international students.

Five new Student Exchange Agreements have been established in 2007: Institute of Maxillofacial Prosthetists & Technologists, Calgary University, Cornell University, Clarkson University and Deakin University. There has been an increase of 10% in outbound Exchange students and a 12% decrease in inbound Exchange students. This has allowed for existing unfavourable reciprocity imbalances to be addressed. G11 Continue to give priority to Achieved development of the Study Highlights: Abroad programme. The Massey Study Abroad programme continues to grow and has benefited from increased exposure in overseas promotions (particularly in the USA and Germany) and the development of new third-party provider partnerships. Study Abroad enrolments in 2007 are 149 compared to 136 in 2006. Four new Direct Study Abroad agreements have been finalised in 2007. These are with Eastern Illinois University, European Business School (Germany), Tokyo Kezai University and BiTS (Germany).

Other highlights of initiatives Massey University is part of an international community of scholars. focused on internationalisation: In 2007 relationships were maintained and advanced with numerous universities, research institutions and government organisations, including the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, Mexico, countries in the European Union, Malaysia, Japan, China, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Thailand, Samoa, India and Scandinavia. Massey has active international relationships and academic agreements with other universities and research institutions, many of which provide study abroad and student exchange opportunities along with research collaborations. Examples of these include: • a second tripartite agreement signed between Massey University and the prestigious Peking University • a memorandum of agreement with Mexico’s Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco de Los Estados Unidos Mexicanos (UJAT). • A memorandum of understanding signed with Kasetsart University in Thailand and the Academy for Physical Education, Katowice in Poland. 138 In 2007 Massey University was host to a number of international conferences, including: • 49th International Association for Vegetation Science Conference, February 2007 • Evolution 2007, June 2007 • Chief of Army Seminar “Warfighting in a Contemporary Environment”, August 2007 • Symposium on Insulin Resistance, Diabetes and Vulnerable Populations, October 2007 • 2nd International Conference on Sensing Technology (ICST’07), November 2007 • 4th International Conference on Computational Intelligence (CIRAS’07), November 2007.

To ensure the University has a sustainable resource base sufficient to pursue its primary aims. 2. To have management at all levels which is competent, effective and accountable. 3. To support teaching, learning and research activities, through provision of quality infrastructure, national shared services and regional support activities. OBJECTIVES • To act as a responsible user of resources, employing management processes and structures appropriate to the size, purpose and multi-campus nature of the University. • To strengthen the University’s financial position through pursuit of higher net revenues and greater utilisation of assets, and by ensuring the effectiveness of all expenditures. • To ensure that the University is managed in such a manner as to safeguard its long-term viability. • To ensure that comprehensive planning processes and development strategies are formulated and implemented for the future continuing benefit of the University. • To continue to enhance effective information systems that can support sound and timely decision-making. • To continue to develop health and safety management systems that meet statutory (and ACC) standards and provide for the welfare of staff and students. • To monitor the University’s organisational structure to ensure that its activities are carried out in an efficient and effective manner. • To further develop or adopt organisational structures that enhance and promote those areas that have created the distinctive features of Massey University. • To manage the University’s natural environment in a sustainable manner, and to protect, and where possible, to enhance the environmental quality of its natural resources. • To continue to enhance the aesthetic values of the campuses and maintain a stimulating environment for the work, recreation and cultural activities of staff and students. PERFORMANCE 2007 Looking back on 2007, one important challenge faced by the University was the tertiary education reforms and their consequent changes to the tertiary education system as announced by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) in the Tertiary Education Strategy 2007–2012. The changes included a new funding model, which moved from being based on enrolment numbers to be more focused on managed change and planned growth in student numbers, along with the requirement to submit a three-year Investment Plan. The University’s Investment Plan, Investing in Our Future, demonstrates the University’s significant contribution to the nation and sets out the University’s strategic priorities for the three-year period 2008 – 2010, strategic priorities that will enable Massey to deliver on the priorities and key shifts identified in the Tertiary Education Strategy. The University’s Investment Plan was approved in full by the TEC Board of Commissioners in December. Another significant challenge for the University during 2007 was to improve its financial performance. Through a range of initiatives and the commitment of its academic and administrative units, Massey has been able to achieve a surplus for 2007. Coupled with the 2008 projected surplus, this will position the University to move forward and deliver on the strategic priorities as outlined in the Investment Plan. The University continues to invest in infrastructure and facilities in support of teaching, research and research training, with major highlights including: the Hopkirk Research Institute; the Solexa Genome Analysis System; 140 the Massey University Manawatu Microscopy and Imaging Centre: the Massey University Equine and Farm Service wing of the Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences; and the renovated Student Centre building on the Palmerston North campus. (Refer to further detail included in the Performance Indicators section below, and also refer to the “Research & Creative Works” section.) University administrative, academic, and information technology systems and processes have continued to be reviewed and upgraded to ensure that the needs of the University can be met in as cost-effective manner as possible. Following are some of the highlights during the year: • Phase II of the Student Management System project made significant progress, with the new on-line enrolment system being launched in November 2007. • A Service Delivery Optimisation project was commenced in June 2007. The project aims to review the current end-to-end processes across HR, Finance, Marketing, Student Administration, Student Services, IT and infrastructure; benchmark against best practice; and develop and implement standardised, simplified and streamlined processes which deliver efficiencies of support services activities across all three campuses. • The HRIS (Human Resource Information System) project is nearing completion and delivering significant improvements to HR and payroll processes, along with enhanced reporting. • Continued progress is being made on the RIMS project to update the University’s research management and administration systems and processes.

A feature article in the local farms, MUSAC, Wharerata, newspaper wrote about the major internal refurbishments at this iconic the Rugby Institute, the functions centre. Conference Centre as well as improving the contribution margin from such activities. The Sport and Rugby Institute (SRI) is proving to be a facility in increasing demand. Its client base is no longer exclusively rugbyoriented and includes a variety of notable sporting organisations such as Swimming NZ. The SRI is a key player in the region’s bid to host a Rugby 2011 World Cup team and matches. The bid is being cooperatively prepared by the major sport/tourist/economic development organisations in the region. A major sponsor for the SRI is being actively pursued. The farms have shown an increase in profit each year for the last four years despite very depressed sheep and beef prices. A buoyant dairy farming market with good payouts from Fonterra have off-set the depressed sheep and beef farming market. Careful management and optimisation of staffing and space at all three campuses, alongside the rebranding and emphasis of the Centre for University Preparation and English Language Studies as a quality tertiary university preparation unit, is paying dividends. 149 Other highlights of initiatives Opus International Consultants Ltd has won two awards for The focused on Organisation and Student Centre (Turitea) from the New Zealand Institute of Architects, Management Western Branch, and an Award for Architecture and a Resene Colour Award. These are the same as awarded for the Hopkirk Research Institute and have been presented in New Plymouth in November.
