Wright State University became an independent institution in 1967 and spent the next 50 years growing into an innovative leader in affordable and accessible education. In 2017, we celebrate the first 50 years and set the course for the next half century.

Alumna

I was a young, single mother determined to beat the odds. Wright State allowed me to have the flexibility I needed to graduate with highest honors and raise my daughter. Now, I work for a Fortune 500 company in marketing and have my M.B.A.

Ginger Keeton

Alumna

Wright State is home! In 1993, I earned my B.S.E. Upon considering where to obtain my masters, I gravitated back to Wright State in 2000. For my administration license, I came here in 2007. Now, I work with Wright State student teachers in my school to pay it forward!
