The 2015 Group Award recipients were the University of Waikato's Te Kotahitanga Research and Professional Development Team. Professor Russell Bishop, Associate Professor Mere Berryman, Therese Ford, Margaret Egan, Dawn Lawrence, Te AraniBarrett, Iti Joyce, Robbie Lamont.  

The use of kaupapa Māori principles and methodologies, as well as the volition to establish productive Treaty-based partnerships with non-Māori, has resulted in indigenous expertise driving culturally responsive provision for Māori students in New Zealand secondary school contexts.  Recognised across and within communities locally, nationally and internationally, Te Kotahitanga as a research and professional development initiative, has made a major impact on Māori students’ levels of engagement and achievement. In doing so the Te Kotahitanga team has been successful in supporting schools and their communities to reduce educational disadvantage and disparity.
