Centres at Dubbo Campus

Centre for Indigenous Studies

The Centre for Indigenous Studies was established in 2007 as a part of Charles Sturt University's commitment to strengthen educational outcomes for Indigenous people and to foster the University's engagement with Indigenous students and communities. The Centre is located at the Dubbo campus and is the flagship of Indigenous education and research at CSU. The Centre aims to become a leading provider of Indigenous education at both the regional and national level through its teaching, research, and community engagement and consultation on Indigenous issues.

The Centre for Indigenous Studies has developed a Reconciliation Statement and an Indigenous Education Strategy for Charles Sturt University. These form the basis of the University's vision and plans for Indigenous Education. Other responsibilities of the Centre for Indigenous Studies include:

  • the identification, development and delivery of Indigenous programs of teaching and research across professional and general academic programs within the University;
  • taking a lead role in the development of collaborative engagement between Indigenous communities and University Faculties, Research Centres and Schools;
  • representing Charles Sturt University in matters relating to Indigenous Education at the University;
  • developing research and consultancy links and projects with local communities, institutions, services and agencies, and with national and international scholarly communities in the field.
