- Regional Universities Network conference to be held on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 September
- Charles Sturt Vice-Chancellor Professor Renée Leon will be a guest speaker on day two of the conference
Charles Sturt University is proud to be part of the Regional Universities Network (RUN) Conference in 2021 to explore how regional universities build and sustain regional communities.
The RUN is comprised of seven regional universities which will gather for the RUN21 conference to be held online and which will explore how regional education providers are anchor institutions for their communities.
University leaders, students, graduates, academics, experts in regional research, policy experts and politicians will discuss how regional universities can work with government, community and industry to build and sustain vibrant futures for regional communities.
Charles Sturt University Vice-Chancellor Professor Renée Leon will be a guest speaker on day two of the conference as part of the Vice-Chancellor panel.
Professor Leon said Charles Sturt is a great example of how regional universities enrich regional communities.
“Charles Sturt University is proud to be an anchor institution in regional Australia and to help build and sustain the communities in its footprint,” she said.
“We do this by working with industry and our partners to create research with impact in agriculture, water, environment, rural health, cyber security and IT.
“We also help to fill vitally important regional skills gaps in fields like education and health by producing career-ready graduates in teaching and healthcare.”
RUN21 will be held on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 September from 12pm to 2pm both days. Registrations can be made on the RUN21 website.
