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.

Student & Staff

WSU’s championing of the LGBTQAI+ community has changed my life. Through Safe Space training and links to the Office of LGBTQAI Affairs, I discovered a label I now wear proudly: queer. I also have met the most inspiring and affirming people here, with incredible teachers and a strong, family-like community.

Alumni & Staff

Wright State to me means Opportunity: WSU has given so many people a chance to succeed when others didn't. It gave me an Opportunity to complete my master’s degree and obtain a full time staff position! It has afforded me opportunities to grow as a student, professional and person.

I have been able to gain unique experiences through employment and research opportunities such as NSF-RET that will make me an excellent teacher when I graduate. Through student employment I've made connections and learned important skills while having fun and getting some grocery money for it!
