Make a difference: create a world worth living in

Yindyamarra Winhanganha. This is a Wiradjuri phrase meaning ‘the wisdom of knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.’

It’s at the heart of everything we stand for at Charles Sturt University. It informs the courses we offer, the research we do, and the ways we collaborate with our communities.

And it’s what drives our alumni – the people who are out there, now, making a difference in their career for communities across Australia and the world.
