"Working at CSU allows for a real work-life balance. CSU provides excellent professional development support and many career development opportunities. I am encouraged to continue industry engagement on the latest films, whilst maintaining a family friendly healthy lifestyle living in a regional community environment."
"Working at CSU in regional NSW is such a delight. Having relocated from Melbourne I found myself skiting to colleagues about my ten minute commute between home and work! I can easily pick up the kids and be home within half an hour to enjoy family time. The lifestyle in regional NSW is also something to write home about – we have greater access to the bush, to other interesting towns and festivals as well as being no more than three hours from a major city. Academically I find CSU to be friendly, supportive and resourceful. It has been an excellent tree change and I am happy to be a CSU staff member."
"Working at Charles Sturt University has given me the opportunity to pursue work I love, in a regional city I’m passionate about. I’ve worked for CSU since 2015 and what really stands out to me are the flexible workplace policies that are in place to help me manage working full time while raising a young family. You also join a community of people that are really driven to make a difference, both to our students and our communities, and that is very inspiring."
The Wiradjuri phase yindyamarra winhanganha means the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in. This phrase represents who we are at CSU - our ethos. It comes from traditional Indigenous Australian knowledge but it also speaks to the mission of a university – to develop and spread wisdom to make the world a better place.
Our university narrative expands on this by confirming "we are a university of the land and people of our regions and we aim to develop holistic, far-sighted people who help their communities grow and flourish".
