The university and members of Wright State’s board of trustees have declined to comment publicly on how they will replace Schrader.
“Dr. Edwards will be the acting president – for how long, I do not know,” said Gary Dickstein, departing interim vice provost for Student Affairs.
The university's total enrollment fell by more than 2,500 students between 2015 and 2018 — nearly a 14 percent drop.
“We are looking forward to the chance to build a new and constructive relationship with the next president.”

Wright State received 28 of 36 first-place votes in a poll of coaches, media and sports information directors. NKU, which picked up five first-place votes, was second.
At Tuesday’s school board meeting board member John McManus questioned the move as well as transparency around the hire.
The family-friendly musical comedy, The Addams Family, will run from October 31st–November 17th.
The support she received has been "overwhelming," Edwards said. "The alumni, faculty, students; I was truly held up by them."
