Charles Darwin University is a truly unique institution.
With our home and our heart in the Northern Territory, we embrace the inclusive, resilient, and courageous spirit of the NT in our campuses and delivery sites that space a diverse footprint from the capital cities and Darwin, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney: to the regional hubs of Alice Springs, Palmerston and Katherine; our remote locations in Jabiru, Tennant Creek and Yulara; and on Country – in community, with community.
Our multi-campus, dual-sector status, virtual and online expertise, course profile, research activities, delivery methods, and operation as are a consequence of our commitment to the regions in which we operate. The Northern Territory spans approximately one sixth of Australia’s landmass and yet is home to just one percent of the population, of whom 30% are First Nations Peoples.
Due to our location, we are in an enviable position to contribute to the future opportunity of Northern Australia, and our neighbours in the Asia Pacific, through our innovative and impactful training, education, and research.
The University now has in place the new Strategic Plan which will guide the development of our university over the next five years. It gives us a very clear road map to build a bigger, better and stronger university, valuing and empowering our people to make a difference.
CDU believes in the transformative power of training, education and research to change people’s lives for the better. We have a collective responsibility to make sure that our training, education and research is not only high quality and delivered by outstanding educators and researchers but is accessible and meaningful. What we do matters to our communities.
We are a deeply connected university, working in partnership and collaboration with First Nations peoples, our communities and industries, government, and alumni to address the needs of the Northern Territory and regional, rural, and remote people nationally and globally.
We are committed to making important contributions to the social, economic and environmental sustainability of the NT and Northern Australia and to export our expertise nationally and globally.
