Wright State Launches New School


Join us to celebrate the new School of Public and International Affairs, a multidisciplinary collaboration focusing on the study of public policy, politics, law, governance, geography, urban affairs, and other public interests. 

Celebrating 50 Years

In 1967, when enrollment reached 5,704 students, the Dayton Campus of Miami University and Ohio State University ceased to exist, and the newly independent Wright State University came into being. Join us throughout 2017 as we celebrate our history and look forward to the future.

We See the Potential in You

The Wright brothers were not pilots. They were dreamers and inventors. Through their persistence they taught the world to fly. Named after these pioneers we carry on their desire to build, create, and pioneer. What does it mean to be a pioneer? Find out here.
