Our Values

Charles Sturt University has a proud history and we are very fortunate to have an outstanding group of diverse, passionate and engaged people working with us.

Each person's experience of CSU will be the sum of the ways in which we all behave – as co-workers, as professionals and as the 'faces' of our university.

As a values driven organisation, we all therefore have an important role to play in bringing our values to life and making them part of our daily lives. Underpinning our ethos, our four values are shown below.

These values aim to guide our behaviour and way of working to help us achieve our ethos of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.
