Charles Sturt University (Charles Sturt) staff, students and alumni will take part in a day of celebration to mark the 30th anniversary of the foundation of the University on Wednesday 17 July.

To commemorate the milestone, Charles Sturt is hosting a range of celebratory events at all campuses which will engage and entertain around the University’s Foundation Day theme: The big moments.

Charles Sturt is celebrating the memories, contributions and moments our staff, students, alumni, partners, and community have loved from their experiences at the University over the last 30 years.

Charles Sturt Vice-Chancellor Professor Andrew Vann (pictured) said, “We are marking a major milestone this year – our 30th anniversary as a university – and we’re celebrating because Charles Sturt students and alumni are creating a world worth living in by making a true impact in their communities, nationally and internationally.

“In 1989 the Mitchell College of Advanced Education and the Riverina-Murray Institute of Higher Education merged to establish Charles Sturt University with campuses in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst and Wagga Wagga.

“We then established campuses in Canberra, Orange, Dubbo, and more recently Port Macquarie, and we’ve achieved so much in 30 years.

“Charles Sturt offers higher education in fields critical to the ongoing success and development of our regions, and the nation, such as teaching, policing, nursing, allied health, business, communication, accounting, computing, and mathematics.

“We’ve launched engineering, law, physiotherapy, dentistry, and soon, the Joint Program in Medicine.

“The University has a strong track record in Indigenous education, graduating the highest number of Indigenous students in Australia.

“We are consistently ranked in government surveys as the University with the highest full-time employment rate.

“The University contributes enormously to regional development and the creation of vibrant communities, and we look forward to doing so much more.

“We couldn’t achieve these outcomes for our students without our incredible network of industry, community and hard-working professional staff.

“I thank all who have contributed to the creation and advancement of this great institution, Charles Sturt University.”

On campus at the Foundation Day events and through social media for our broader community, we will share and celebrate #TheBigMoments on social media, so please get involved.

Charles Sturt staff, students, alumni, and members of the local community are all invited to attend the University’s 30th anniversary events this Foundation Day 17 July.
