The origin of Charles Darwin University (CDU) can be traced back to 1989 when the territory's first university, the Northern Territory University, was established. It was the first dual-sector university in Australia that provided higher education as well as vocational training. In 2003, Charles Darwin University was formed under an act of the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly by merging the Northern Territory University, the Northern Territory Rural College in Katherine, and Centralian College in Alice Springs, in collaboration with the Menzies School of Health Research. Currently, the university holds the membership of the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning (ASAIHL) and the Innovative Research Universities (IRU).
