As an educational institution, we’re viewed as a leader in growth and innovation. It’s our responsibility to engage with the community, in particular with business and industry and commit to working together to benefit wider society.
Charles Sturt University’s relationship with business and industry may be to share physical space or equipment; to encourage collaborative teaching and research projects, to incubate or support new companies; or to provide real-world learning opportunities for students or recent graduates.
Charles Sturt University, like other educational institutions, contributes to the local economy. We do this directly; through the procurement of local products and services, or indirectly; by strengthening the local workforce through skills development. You can support this by using (and encouraging others to use) local businesses and services.
