Government Relations

Government Relations provides strategic advice to the Vice-Chancellor, University Council, senior-executive and the wider CSU community on all matters relating to our engagement and positioning with government and policy.

Taking a collaborative approach, we seek to work with government to deliver the best possible outcomes for CSU as a whole.

Government Relations is responsible for:

  • Managing CSU's engagement and advocacy with government and political stakeholders
  • Coordinating campus visits and other engagement opportunities for the CSU community with government and political stakeholders
  • Crafting responses to official inquiries and discussion papers, including Senate Inquiries and Federal and State Government Green and White Paper processes
  • Providing government relations and policy training to key CSU staff for their future government and stakeholder interactions
  • Maintaining databases of CSU-wide engagement and interaction with government and political stakeholders.
