RISE. SHINE. These two small-yet-powerful words describe today’s spirit at Wright State. Rise. Shine. The Campaign for Wright State University seeks to capitalize on that spirit and transform the university to benefit students and the economic future of Ohio and far beyond.

Inspired by the creative spirit of the Wright brothers, Wright State University aims to become a nationally recognized learning-centered and innovative university, known and admired for its inclusive culture that values the contributions of each student, faculty and staff member, and alumnus.

As the university approaches its 50th anniversary in 2017, it is already moving boldly into a new era of tremendous change, unprecedented challenge, and unlimited opportunity. This is an era in which Wright State University is uniquely positioned to succeed. Wright State’s track record speaks for itself: this accessible, affordable university has risen to world-class levels in academics, faculty, facilities, and research.

In co-chairing this campaign, we are committed to helping Wright State move ever forward, and always up. Join us in supporting this effort—together we will rise, together we will shine!
