Organization Chart 

Collaboration

We collaborate with students, faculty, and staff of the undergraduate programs of the academic colleges to help ensure a successful and fulfilling academic experience for all students.

Diversity

We recruit a staff rich in diverse experiences and perspectives. Because we value this diversity among ourselves, we embrace the diverse experiences and perspectives of Wright State’s students, faculty, and staff. We believe diverse perspectives produce better results.

Innovation

We commit ourselves to lifelong learning. We stay well-informed of best practices in advising, academic support, and student development. We utilize our diversity and our commitment to lifelong learning to cultivate curiosity.  We continually research methods and trends to help students achieve educational success.
