The article is a brief summary of a larger project that studied the experiences of four Maori women in the academy. The project attempted t o identify practices that limited and/or supported Maori women's participation within the academy. The project suggested five emerging themes that relate t o these women's experiences: motivation to pursue and maintain tertiary study; the entry experiences of Maori women into the academy; being supported within the academy; women in the academy and the multiplicity of roles; and learning from the experiences of others.
