Alumni and Giving

University Advancement plays a pivotal role in maintaining strong links with alumni, friends and supporters of the Charles Darwin University through a programme of events, services and communications.

We are also responsible for encouraging and stewarding philanthropic gifts to support a range of needs, including scholarships for students, academic excellence and high impact research through our Development team, which are essential for the continued development of the University, the well-being of students and the promotion of our shared commitment to inspirational teaching and world-changing research. We do this by actively working with individual supporters, alumni, charitable trusts and foundations and organisations.

CDU has launched the Emergency Student Appeal

Emergency Student Appeal

The COVID-19 pandemic is casting a wide shadow over our lives, including many CDU students.

In response, CDU has created the Emergency Student Appeal to assist students experiencing financial hardship, and support them with essential living expenses and alleviate some of the stress and anxiety they are experiencing.


CDU Alumni play a pivotal role in the life and future of the university. Forever aligned by their shared experience, the CDU Alumni network is a dynamic and connected family of more than 70,000 graduates from over 140 countries around the globe.

CDU values the knowledge, expertise and success of our alumni and provides many opportunities to support them further and to share their experiences to the benefit of others.

At CDU we believe a new world university is one built on social justice, sustainability, creativity and collective effort.  A place where everyone can follow their passion to make things better - however big or small.  We strive for excellence, integrity, accountability and equality of opportunity for all.  We value and respect the place, history and culture of Indigenous Australians.

By Donating to Charles Darwin University, you are part of bringing people together to use knowledge to help shape a brighter future.
