Stan the man

Dubbo Photo News - - Weekender -

STAN GRANT is well-known through­out Aus­tralia as one of the na­tion’s fore­most In­dige­nous jour­nal­ists, au­thors and so­cial com­men­ta­tors, but per­haps less well known for his role in sup­port­ing re­gional ed­u­ca­tion through his work with Charles Sturt Univer­sity (CSU).

Dr Grant was in town this week to at­tend and speak at CSU’S an­nual stu­dent lead­er­ship con­fer­ence and in­au­gu­ral In­dige­nous stu­dent con­fer­ence.

Given the im­por­tance of CSU to this area, and cou­pled with the emerg­ing main­stream re­al­i­sa­tion that ed­u­ca­tion equals op­por­tu­nity, his pre­sen­ta­tion couldn’t have been time­lier.
