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.

Roni Wilson-Vinson

Alumna

I was active in many student organizations. They became a lab environment for me to witness in real life what I was learning in my communication classes. I manage a corporate university for Saba Software. Every day I use skills I gained and it made me a better leader.

Leroy L. Long III, Ph.D.

Alumnus, 2008

Thanks to my Wright STEPP Scholarship, I earned a B.S. in mechanical engineering debt-free. I received invaluable mentorship from administrators like Ruby Mawasha, developed leadership skills through clubs like the National Society of Black Engineers, and gained work experience at Toyota through organizations like INROADS.

Alumnus

Wright State taught me about diversity. I remember being one of the only African Americans in some of my classes—that opened my eyes to a world I now know how to embrace. I learned leadership. I went from working on campus to a H.S. principal that serves 2,000 students.
