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.
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.
Gulbali Research Institute
The Gulbali Research Institute creates impactful integrated agriculture, water and environment research, grounded in Charles Sturt’s footprint across the Murray-Darling Basin, but with impact across Australia and globally.
Rural and Regional Health Research Institute
The Rural Health Research Institute has been established at Charles Sturt University to lead research on regional, remote and Indigenous health.
It follows the establishment of the Doctor of Medicine joint program at Charles Sturt University in collaboration with Western Sydney University, in which the Commonwealth Government has provided funding for it’s establishment. The institute will also lead international research on aspects of rural and remote health.
Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture
An ecumenical body, and Centre of Charles Sturt University, promoting religion and culture, indigenous reconciliation, interfaith dialogue, and more.
