We seek to encourage applied research that will benefit the communities in our regions, as well as the communities that we serve nationally and internationally.


As part of our work in Business, many of our researchers have obtained nationally competitive grants as well as industry and government funding, and published their research findings in leading national and international journals.

The strong investment of the University in research in the Faculty has lead to substantive improvement in several key disciplinary areas in the Commonwealth government's latest Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) review, a result we are seeking to build on in coming years.


We are actively engaged in high-profile research projects that contribute to legal advocacy and policy change. We are committed to building CSU's profile as an institution on the forefront of research that:

  • builds and sustains the environment
  • fosters resilient and healthy communities
  • promotes and evaluates regional development
  • cultivates a civil and just society
  • partners with Indigenous communities and organisations
  • engages in reflexive educational and professional practice

Behavioural Sciences

As scientists, psychologists undertake fascinating research into every imaginable aspect of human behaviour.
