For the Public Good

We are a university of the land and people of our regions. True to the character of regional Australia we have gumption, we have soul and we collaborate with others.

We develop holistic, far-sighted people who help their communities grow and flourish. Acknowledging the culture and insight of Indigenous Australians, CSU's ethos is clearly described by the Wiradjuri phrase:

'yindyamarra winhanganha'

('the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in'.)

Harnessing technology, we thrive as a distributed yet connected community, welcoming and engaging with people across Australia and the world.


CSU's aspirations are elaborated through the following enduring objectives for our communities, our students and ourselves.
