"We welcome alumni, past and current staff and students, and community members to celebrate this occasion and share memories and our achievements."

"Charles Sturt University plays a significant role providing a range of skilled professionals including nurses, teachers, and social workers in western NSW," she said.

"The recent addition of the dental clinic in Dubbo is also a testament to the practical contribution the University makes to the community.

"We have made a significant boost to Indigenous tertiary education, as well as the recognition of and support for Indigenous issues and awareness."
