Charles Sturt University (CSU) is an Australian multi-campus university located in New South Wales, Victoria, and the Australian Capital Territory. It has campuses at Bathurst, Canberra, Albury-Wodonga, Dubbo, Goulburn, Orange, Wagga Wagga and Burlington, Ontario (Canada). It also has specialist centres in North Parramatta, Manly (Sydney), and Broken Hill. In 2012, Charles Sturt University set up the Port Macquarie Campus with plans to extend its range of programs. This was in response to significant research designed to retain young people in the area and contribute to the growth of the educational standards for the Hastings region. CSU courses are also delivered in conjunction with Study Group Australia in Sydney and Melbourne (known as CSU Study Centres). Charles Sturt University was established on 1 July 1989 from the merger of several existing separately-administered Colleges of Advanced Education including the Mitchell College of Advanced Education in Bathurst, the Riverina-Murray Institute of Higher Education in Albury-Wodonga and the Riverina College of Advanced Education in Wagga Wagga, through the enactment of The Charles Sturt University Act, 1989 (Act No. 76, 1989). It is named in honour of explorer Charles Sturt. CSU has various course delivery partnerships with several TAFE institutions across the country. CSU is well known for its extensive range of distance education courses, which are online supported. CSU is also well known for its most famous graduate, Andrew Denton.
