Working Together for Student Success
This theme integrates and explores how all activities and endeavours at CSU should focus ultimately on the success of our students.
Examples of such activities – given that it encompasses all services and every staff member at CSU:
The Think Pieces 2019 Project provides an opportunity for an ongoing, open dialogue about how some of the CSU community are thinking about these challenges and opportunities.
These think pieces can be tracked down in Yammer (https://www.yammer.com/csu.edu.au/) by searching for the word "pieces". Looking forward to your comments/"replies" in Yammer on these respective think pieces.
