Explorations Series

Charles Sturt University's Explorations Series is part of the Community-University Partnership (CUP) program and aims to engage our rural and regional communities in discussion and debate about major issues facing our regions, the nation and the world.

The name of the University honours the noted explorer Captain Charles Napier Sturt.  It was, in the words of Charles Sturt, a "… wish to contribute to the public good" that gave him the gumption to explore and map the interiors and major waterways of western NSW.  Through his explorations, Sturt contributed to our understanding of rural and regional Australia, and the natural world.

The Explorations Series brings speakers from diverse disciplines to our campuses to share the latest ideas, thinking and opinions on contemporary social, scientific and cultural issues. Delivered by prominent academics, authors and keynote speakers, events in the series are designed to encourage debate and explore ideas about the big issues facing our society.

For further information on the Explorations Series, please contact the University's Regional Relations Coordinator on (02) 6633 4007.

All Explorations events are FREE and open to the public.
