The history of Charles Sturt University dates back to 1895, with the establishment of the Bathurst Experiment Farm. Formed progressively through the merge of regional institutions in south-western and western NSW, CSU was formally incorporated on 19 July 1989 under the Charles Sturt University Act 1989. As one of Australia’s newer universities, CSU has been built on a tradition of excellence in teaching and research spanning more than 100 years. Charles Sturt University has a proud history and we are very fortunate to have an outstanding group of diverse, passionate and engaged people working with us. Each person’s experience of CSU will be the sum of the ways in which we all behave – as co-workers, as professionals and as the ‘faces’ of our university. As a values driven organization, we all therefore have an important role to play in bringing our values to life and making them part of our daily lives. Underpinning our ethos, our four values are shown below. These values aim to guide our behaviour and way of working to help us achieve our ethos of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.
