This comprehensive history of the Auckland College of Education was commissioned to celebrate its 125 years of existence and its merger in 2005 with the University of Auckland. 

Making a Difference gives a detailed account of events, sets them in context and highlights repeated themes, such as relations between college and university, and between college and government, which frequently concern under-resourcing. Attention is given to the voices of students and especially to the college leaders, using oral history sources as well as written documents.
