Campus Scholarship and Innovation Campaign (CSIC)

Campus Scholarship and Innovation Campaign (CSIC)

The Campus Scholarship and Innovation Campaign (CSIC) began in 1978 when one of Wright State's first employees organized the university's first-ever employee giving effort. More than four decades later, we continue to see the impact of CSIC, as a way to support our students.  

As we embark on this year’s CSIC campaign we most certainly understand that, in a variety of ways, these are STILL challenging times for all of us. The past 12 months have proven our resilience as a community.

Despite the challenges we all face; our students remain the consistent focus. They need us, now more than ever. It has been a year since our campus community and the world as we knew it was forever changed. We reflect on the impact that COVID-19 continues to have on all of us, and most importantly, our students. During the fall semester the university had received nearly 1,100 requests for emergency assistance from students experiencing hardship. The solution to COVID-19 is close, however, during these continued challenging times, we have the greatest opportunity to come together and advance our mission.

Let’s continue forward together by supporting our students, and give to an area of campus that is most important to you. Our students still urgently need emergency support and you can make an immediate impact for those struggling by making a donation to one of our student emergency relief funds or college emergency funds.
