Research institutes and faculties

Charles Sturt University has emerging Research Institutes and three Faculties. They are designed to bring together staff around a coherent theme.

Research institutes

At Charles Sturt, we are committed to creating new knowledge that can be applied for the betterment of our communities - both global and local.‚Äč

Research is a key pillar of our University Strategy 2030, as such we are launching three new research institutes in 2022.

The first is Gulbali Institute, which will focus on agriculture, water and environment.

Announcements on the other institutes will be made in early 2022.

Operations of the Graham Centre; National Wine and Grape Industry Centre; and Institute of Land Water and Society have now ceased. These centres are transitioning into the Gulbali Institute.
