Senior diplomats visit CSU
4 NOVEMBER 2013
Agricultural and wine research took centre stage when senior diplomats from 27 countries visited Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga on Monday 4 November. Representatives from the NSW Consular Corps toured the University’s world class research facilities, including the National Life Sciences Hub (NaLSH), CSU Winery, National Wine and Grape Industry Centre and the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation. “Charles Sturt University has strong educational and research ties with institutions in many of the countries represented in this tour and more than 200 international students are currently studying here in Wagga Wagga,” said the CSU Head of Campus in Wagga Wagga Ms Miriam Dayhew. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to strengthen those ties and show these senior diplomats what the University has to offer.” The tour was facilitated by the Minister for Western NSW, Mr Kevin Humphries MP, to build international awareness of the educational and business opportunities available within the region.
