Dubbo Head of Campus

Welcome from the Head of Campus

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 education courses for the professions thus contributing to the training and retention of professionals for inland and rural Australia.  In particular, we seek to deliver teaching and research programs designed to improve the health, education and well-being of inland Australians.

The City of Dubbo, centrally located at the junction of the Mitchell, Golden and Newell Highways in the heart of New South Wales, has a population of over 40,000. In addition, it services a total regional population of 120,000 which occupies approximately a third of the geographic area of the state, extending westward to the South Australian border and northward to the Queensland border. Hence, Dubbo is ideally positioned to attract a diverse range of students from remote, regional and urban locations.

We offer our students flexible access to a range of courses delivered either on campus or by distance education in the areas of Arts, Business, Education and Science. We offer a variety of flexible teaching methods to suit differing personal circumstances including multiple delivery platforms, third party collaborations and online education.

Building on these existing courses, our current focus is on broadening community engagement between our Campus and its local communities to ensure existing and potential programs are relevant to needs both now and into the future. Hence, we are committed to encouraging entrepreneurial approaches in the way in which we engage with regional businesses, organisations and groups especially those involving Indigenous communities and individuals, in order to encourage unique and innovative courses and approaches that will lead to more meaningful and sustainable outcomes for all.  

Information on the courses offered at CSU and those that are supported through Dubbo Campus is available by phoning info.csu on Freecall 1800 334 733 or visit the CSU course website.

In 2012, construction of extensive recreational facilities was completed on campus including a gym, recreation area and function hall. 

The Office of the Head of Campus is responsible for a range of matters including, but not restricted to the following:

  • Regional engagement – strengthening links between the University and the region it services
  • Student welfare
  • Student general misconduct
  • Orana and Far Western Regional Consultative Committee
  • The Critical Response Group
  • The Campus Environment Committee
  • The Public Lecture Series

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 explore further on this website to find out exactly what Dubbo Campus has to offer.
