We’re young, vibrant and fresh in our thinking, communication and actions. We’re not shackled by the past.

We are a new world university. Like our namesake, Charles Darwin University (CDU), we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, challenge conventions and look for better ways. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We care about people as individuals, and about our wider society. We’re about what we can give to the world, rather than what we take. We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought, so we bring together people with unique perspectives in an inclusive and supporting learning environment to help them connect, discover and grow. This is the CDU difference.
