Towards Cultural Competence
Implemented in 2009, the Charles Sturt University Indigenous Education Strategy and its recommendations provide a comprehensive whole-of-institution framework for engagement with Indigenous communities, positioning CSU as a lead provider of Indigenous education, research and the cultural competence training of professionals of the future.
CSU has an ongoing commitment to reconciliation and social justice, and this is demonstrated through the endorsement of the Indigenous Education Strategy by the Vice Chancellor and Academic Senate.
The Curriculum Guidelines for the Incorporation of Indigenous Australian Content into CSU Onshore Undergraduate Programs was developed by the Centre for Indigenous Studies in collaboration with Academic Senate, in response to Recommendation 17 of the Strategy. The guidelines are designed to enable Key Objective 5 of the CSU Indigenous Education Strategy by providing a resource to assist academic staff, educational designers and others in the development of Indigenous Australian content at subject and course level and strategies for effective delivery and assessment of student learning.
