Research institutes and centres

At Charles Sturt, we are committed to creating new knowledge that can be applied for the betterment of our communities - both global and local.‚Äč

Research is a key pillar of our University Strategy 2030, as such we are launching three new research institutes in 2022.

The first is Gulbali Institute, which will focus on agriculture, water and environment.

Announcements on the other institutes will be made in early 2022.

The institute will also lead international research on aspects of rural and remote health.
