Encourage academic excellence

We bring together expertise in Indigenous knowledge practices, human geography, disaster preparedness and management, languages, humanities and the creative industries

Through research, supportive education and scholarship programs, CDU addresses social, cultural and economic issues in:
• sparsely populated regional areas, including northern Australia
• developing regions, including SE Asia
• Indigenous knowledge, social, cultural and economic futures

Tailored discovery projects and educational opportunities are providing promising futures that many first Australians may never have thought possible.
