SIT2LRN Distance Learning students have access to all of the Southern Institute of Technology's (SIT's) Student Services and its Learning Support Centre.

Majority of these services are available through Blackboard and information sent to students in their Student Information Booklets.

At SIT, we want our students to succeed and encourage them to use the student services available to them.

SIT2LRN Student Liaison

Pauline Te Maiharoa

I'm the 'connector' between students and SIT2LRN. Student liaison is all about helping students to engage with their studies and achieve their goals. Sometimes students may want help or to talk with someone, but aren't sure who to contact - so they can contact me and I will help them connect to the right person or area. I am passionate about people and am genuinely interested in our students.
