A COLORADO State University official is unaware of any confusion between his institution and Charles Sturt University due to their initials.
Sharing the CSU acronym with the US school was cited by Charles Sturt University deputy vice-chancellor (students) Jenny Roberts as a reason to change names to Sturt University.
After resistance, Australia's CSU stated on Monday it would keep its name but Ms Roberts said there would be a move to refer to it as Charles Sturt due to confusion with the American school.
Colorado State University director of public affairs and communications Mike Hooker told The Border Mail via email he knew of no CSU confusion between the northern and southern hemisphere schools.
"I’m not aware of Colorado State University being confused with Charles Sturt University because of the initials, but if it’s been an issue there then I suppose it’s worth considering various solutions," Mr Hooker wrote.
"Certainly if you search online for “CSU” you may get results for any number of CSUs, such as Cleveland State U., California State U., Charles Sturt U., and so on.
"Here in Colorado we’re coming up on the 150th anniversary of our highly-ranked public research university and we’re proud to be known as CSU.
"I’d imagine the feeling is somewhat similar there in Australia, so I wouldn’t presume to say what the right answer is because I assure you that changing the name would be a tough sell here."
The retention of the Charles Sturt University moniker won wide plaudits.
However, the vice-chancellor Andrew Vann indicated there would be other changes to coincide with this year's 30th anniversary of CSU and money earmarked for a name switch would still be used as part of a revamp.
That may include a new logo to replace the stylised Sturt Desert Pea.
"We are really excited about revealing more about our brand in the coming months and sharing more about how our University Strategy is delivering on all the things you asked us to improve — teaching, learning, research and community engagement," Professor Vann said.
