Charles Sturt University develops far-sighted people with a holistic world view who help their communities grow and flourish. Acknowledging the culture and insight of Indigenous Australians, CSU’s ethos is clearly described by the Wiradjuri phrase: ‘yindyamarra winhanga-nha’ (‘the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in’).

Staff in the Division of Student Services work collaboratively with Faculties and Divisions to enhance students’ University experience. We recognise that successful transition into University depends upon a holistic approach involving academic and social integration. Through inclusive practices we build aspiration levels for Higher Education, enhance participation in chosen courses of study and enable people to make smooth transitions into University, successful study, and become effective members of their profession.

The Director Indigenous Student Success will provide senior leadership and direction for the University with respect to services that facilitate access to University by Indigenous peoples, and participation and success of Indigenous students. Success in this role is dependent upon effective collaboration with CSU Faculties and Divisions and with external partners to establish innovative and efficient strategies and services that support CSU’s strategic plans.

Applicants are expected to apply online and address the selection criteria listed in the position description.
