Three Charles Sturt University (CSU) leaders have been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List acknowledging their strong ties to education and the community.

CSU’s Emeritus Professor Ross Chambers (AM), Adjunct Professor David Goldney (AM) and Kurt Fearnley (AO) were awarded for their work and dedication to their field of expertise.

Professor Chambers was awarded an AM for significant service to education through a range of senior academic roles, and to providing tertiary opportunities in regional areas.

Professor Goldney was awarded an AM for significant service to tertiary education in the field of environmental science, and to conservation through resource management committees.

Mr Fearnley, a CSU Pro Chancellor (Northern Region), was awarded an AO for distinguished service to people with a disability, as a supporter and fundraiser for Indigenous athletics and charitable organisations, and as a Paralympic athlete.

CSU Vice-Chancellor Professor Andrew Vann said the University applauded each of them for being recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

“The awards reflect their dedication and time they’ve given to the community and their selfless contributions in their field.

“Alongside the honours, they've made stellar contributions to Charles Sturt University through teaching, learning, research and community support, all valuable and inspiring stories for our students,” Professor Vann said.

Professor Vann added it was an enormous privilege to have Professor Chambers, Professor Goldney and Mr Fearnley as part of the CSU community.

“The awards reflect the importance placed on the contributions they’ve made to the broader community where they live and in their field of expertise,” Professor Vann said.
