Alumni Awards

We are very proud to announce our 2020 Alumni Award winners and highly commended!  All of whom are making an astounding impact in their field and inspiring others.

We were overwhelmed by the number and quality of nominations. There truly are so many of you living and breathing the Charles Sturt University ethos Yindyamarra Winhanganha, a Wiradjuri phrase that means the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.

We will be celebrating our winners and their achievements over the coming months.
