Community Relations

Community Relations cultivates strong, relevant and collaborative partnerships designed to promote higher education opportunity and research excellence through CSU and community engagement.

Community Relations is responsible for:

  • Representing CSU's community and government relations interests in each campus region through a dedicated Head of Campus, including a Head of Campus for the Virtual campus
  • Supporting the development of CSU's regions through the Community-University Partnerships (CUP) Community Grants program. Grants to Indigenous, cultural, educational, sporting and related activities aim to build higher education aspiration and awareness among young people in our communities
  • Bringing speakers from diverse disciplines to share the latest ideas, thinking and opinions on contemporary social, scientific and cultural issues with our communities through the Explorations Series
  • Seeking opportunities to bring conferences and events to CSU regions to bring new knowledge and opportunities to our communities
  • Promoting opportunities for our communities to use CSU services such as our Community Dental and Oral Health Clinics and Community Engagement and Wellness Centre
  • Growing community understanding about the impact of CSU on the social, economic and environmental outcomes of our communities
  • Working together with communities to promote regional development and deliver mutually beneficial outcomes.

Further information about each of these areas is available on CSU's Community Portal.
