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 Charles Sturt 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.
