The University was announced as the winner of the 'Continuous Improvement: Institutional Change' category at a ceremony hosted by the University of Otago at Lanark Castle in Dunedin, New Zealand on Thursday, November 14. The win makes Charles Sturt a finalist in the 'Institution of the Year' category in the 2020 International Green Gown Awards.
The 'Continuous Improvement: Institutional Change' category is awarded to a tertiary education institution that demonstrates a sustained and successful commitment to improving sustainability across the entire institution.
The University was also a finalist in the Learning, Teaching and Skills category, recognising the significant effort and leadership shown to develop the Sustainable Practices module as part of the Graduate Learning Outcomes (GLOs) meaning that by 2024 every undergraduate, no matter what they study at Charles Sturt, will have the demonstrated ability to apply sustainability skills relevant to their area of study.
