Beyond the competitive pay and tuition, health care, and other benefits for eligible employees, here are just a few of the reasons why Wright State University is the place for you.
We are changing lives. Most universities pride themselves on being exclusive. At Wright State, we believe education is an inclusive endeavor. High school valedictorians, first-generation students, varsity athletes, science stars, theatre buffs, and students with disabilities...we see their potential. Students are given the opportunity to shine, some of whom may not have had the chance elsewhere.
Wright State's faculty, staff, and retirees enjoy a robust community, sharing a common goal and celebrating the unique contributions of each employee. Events are held regularly to recognize stellar employees, foster friendships and collaboration, and advance the spirit of innovation.
