CSU Dubbo campus stages 20th anniversary event

The Dubbo campus of Charles Sturt University will mark its 20th anniversary next month with a special event.

The landmark occasion will occur on September 5 and will include speeches from staff and guest students, as well as a photo exhibit and past media articles on display, and tours of facilities.

"We welcome alumni, past and current staff and students, and community members to celebrate this occasion and share memories and our achievements," Head of Campus Ms Cathy Maginnis said.

Ms Maginnis said that during the past 20 years CSU had contributed significantly to Dubbo and the NSW western region by enabling local students to study closer to home and to return to their communities to contribute expertise and professional services in rural and remote areas.

"Charles Sturt University plays a significant role providing a range of skilled professionals including nurses, teachers, and social workers in western NSW," she said.

"The recent addition of the dental clinic in Dubbo is also a testament to the practical contribution the University makes to the community.

"We have made a significant boost to Indigenous tertiary education, as well as the recognition of and support for Indigenous issues and awareness." 

"I invite community members and especially any alumni and others associated with the University, to come along to reminisce and share the fun," Ms Maginnis said.

The CSU in Dubbo 20 year celebrations will be from 5 to 8pm on Tuesday 5 September at CSU, 8 Tony McGrane Place, Dubbo.
