Welcome to Charles Sturt University
We believe wisdom transforms communities. With tenacity, we help to shape resilient, sustainable regions for the future. Acknowledging the culture and insight of First Nations Australians, our ethos is clearly described by the Wiradjuri phrase, yindyamarra winhanganha, meaning the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.
Our vision and values
Our mission is to build skills and knowledge in our regions. We offer choice and flexibility to students and work hand-in-hand with our industries and communities in teaching, research and engagement. Growing from our historical roots, we share our knowledge and expertise as a significant regional export industry and we bring strength and learning from this back to our regions.
Through our values, we create a welcoming community experience and learning environment that supports innovative research, advances society and gives back to our regions.
Message from the Vice-Chancellor and President
At Charles Sturt University, we believe in making a difference. We are proud of our international research across many disciplines, including agricultural and veterinary science; education; biological, environmental and chemical sciences; ethics and philosophy.
Our academics are proven experts in their fields, and our research connections span the globe.
When you graduate, you will be ready to take the lead and advance yourself either professionally or personally — whatever your passion may be.

Vice-Chancellor and President
