ToW references disappear from Auckland Uni website?

This is interesting. Up until at least May 3 2005, the University of Auckland had a 'Treaty of Waitangi' section on its 'About' webpage. It read:
The Treaty of Waitangi
The University has special responsibilities and obligations to Maori flowing from the Treaty of Waitangi which must be taken into account in setting strategic goals. But more than this, we recognise the benefits both to the University and to the country of building a strong core of Maori staff, providing programmes that attract Maori students and contributing to Maori intellectual and cultural advancement. The bi-cultural basis of New Zealand society and Maori engagement in academic life confer much of the distinctive and special character of this University.
I can't seem to find it now. If it's still there, they've hidden it away somewhere. The University had a big rewrite of their website not too long ago, so I guess prominent placement of the Treaty of Waitangi is no longer the 'in' thing.

Well, I have noticed how references to the treaty are now absent from public service employment advertisements. Must be election year.

When I was a grad student in a physics department we used to have a wee laugh at the yearly department report. Under the section titled Treaty Compliance (or something along those lines) it was consistently simply "None."
