Our distinguished alumni awards highlight and celebrate the outstanding achievements of our alumni. We recognise the talented individuals who have used their education to make positive contributions to their professions and communities throughout the world. Our alumni are people who lead, inspire and have impact.
We were overwhelmed by the number and the quality of nominations. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our alumni for the time and effort that was clearly put into the submissions and nominations.
We are committed to recognising alumni who are 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.
