Charles Sturt University will next week celebrate three decades since the institution's foundation.
CSU will host celebratory events across all campuses on July 17, such as cake cutting and a birthday lunch at the Wagga campus.
The university is celebrating its contribution to regional development that benefits communities, both domestic and internationally.
"We are marking a major milestone this year - our 30th anniversary as a university - and we're celebrating because Charles Sturt students and alumni are creating a world worth living in by making a true impact in their communities," vice-chancellor Andrew Vann said.
"In 1989 the Mitchell College of Advanced Education and the Riverina-Murray Institute of Higher Education merged to establish Charles Sturt University with campuses in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst and Wagga Wagga.
"We then established campuses in Canberra, Orange, Dubbo, and more recently Port Macquarie, and we've achieved so much in 30 years."
