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.

Mark Anderson

Staff, Director of Web Development & Strategy

In 1997, I joined the Boonshoft School of Medicine to help transform medical education. After completing my master degree from the Raj Soin College of Business, I migrated to the Office of Marketing in 2011 to modernize and focus our public web presence, all of which has been incredibly rewarding.

Nate Jorgensen

Staff, Web Content Specialist

We moved to Dayton after months in the hospital, having sold our house and car, and withdrawn our savings to care for our three little boys. I came with a lot of baggage. A lot of drama. A lot of headaches. Wright State hired me anyway.
