Foundation Day celebrates the day in 1989 two NSW educational institutions came together to become Charles Sturt University.
On 19 July 1989 the Riverina-Murray Institute of Higher Education (based in Albury and Wagga Wagga) amalgamated with the Mitchell College of Advanced Education (based in Bathurst).
Charles Sturt University now has campuses and study centres spread from Brisbane to Melbourne, with students across the entire world, but it began with three foundation campuses in regional NSW in 1989.
More information about the beginnings of CSU can be found on our blog On Record.
Follow the Gallery link on the right to a small selection of photographs taken during the 1990s on those three foundation campuses, right at the beginning of our University.
