As the Head of Dubbo Campus I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which this campus is built. I pay respect to the Elders past, present and future, for they hold the memories, traditions, culture and the hopes of Aboriginal Australia.
Charles Sturt University's vision of a National University of Inland Australia presents the Dubbo Campus with the opportunity to contribute to the achievements of our regional students and communities. We offer higher educational courses for the professions which contribute to the training and retention of professionals for inland and rural Australia. We are especially concerned with education and research which will improve health, education and well-being for inland Australians.
The City of Dubbo is located at the junction of the Mitchell, Golden and Newell Highways in the Western Plains of New South Wales. It has a population of nearly 40,000 and supports a total regional population of more than 120,000 people, extending out to the borders with South Australia in the west and Queensland to the north. Dubbo boasts the impressive Taronga Western Plains Zoo, the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Entertainment Centre, Western Plains Cultural Centre and a thriving sporting and cultural life.
The Dubbo Campus is positioned to attract a very diverse range of students from local and regional students to city dwellers. The range of courses offered on our campus includes nursing, primary and early childhood education, social work, accounting and business. Information on the courses offered at CSU and those that are supported through Dubbo Campus facilities is available by phoning info.csu on 1800 334 733 (free call) or visit the CSU course website.
More information on courses available on the Dubbo Campus can be found at Dubbo Booklet
We also offer a variety of flexible teaching methods to suit differing personal circumstances. We arrange regional placements in nursing and teaching, and attract an increasing number of students from many Indigenous communities.
2010 saw the construction of the Charles Sturt University Dental and Oral Health Clinic on Dubbo Camapus, which is part of the University's multi-campus School of Dentistry and Oral Health. Dental students on our other campuses will be able to undertake practical placements at Dubbo.
In addition, construction is under way on the development of extensive recreational facilities which will enhance Campus life for students and staff, and contribute to the local community. This project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2011 and I congratulate the Dubbo Student Representative Council on their commitment to working with CSU to ensure these facilities became a reality.
Our strong commitment to reconciliation and our active engagement with the Western Plains community allow us to provide a welcoming and supportive environment for all our students. I invite you to take a look at this website to find out more about what the Dubbo Campus has to offer.
