History

Whilst we've been a university for more than 20 years, our history of professional education and research spans more than 100 years. This started with the establishment of the Bathurst Experimental Farm in 1895.

Education

Charles Sturt University's three Faculties (Arts and Education, Business, Justice & Behavioural Sciences, and Science) comprise a number of Schools and centres for specific areas of study and research.

Research

CSU has four University Research Centres. They are designed to bring together staff around a coherent research theme. Each Centre has broad influence and engagement across the University.

University Research Centres leverage their resources to attract external funding to promote achievement as they engage in identifying, pursuing and sharing intellectual leadership with quality domestic and international research partners. The research conducted within the Centres is strongly complemented by research conducted with the Faculties of the University.
