Award success for CSU in Port Macquarie


Friday, 4 Aug 2017

Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Port Macquarie has gained significant recognition in NSW Mid North Coast after winning three awards last weekend at the region's business awards.

The campus won Business Excellence Awards as 'Employer of Choice' and for 'Excellence in Sustainability', while also achieving a Local Industry Award in the 'Community and Education Services' section.

"Charles Sturt University is proud to have won these awards as a recent newcomer to the region," said acting Head of CSU in Port Macquarie, Mr Greg Linsdell

"We have drawn on our long, proud history of providing quality higher education in regional NSW and brought the best elements of this to Port Macquarie.

"The awards recognise these qualities of sound employment prospects, sustainability and outstanding service to our local communities, which we will continue to develop for the 'public good' of Port Macquarie and the wider North Coast region.

"Indeed, these awards reflect the essence of our institution encapsulated in 'Yindyamarra Winhanganha', a Wiradjuri phrase meaning, 'the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in'."
