Institution Details

Wright State University



The groundwork establishing Wright State University as the region's first public institution of higher learning was first laid in 1961, when Dayton was the second-largest metropolitan area in Ohio that had no public higher education facility.

During its early history, Wright State was characterized by rapid growth. When the then branch campus opened, 3,203 students were enrolled. That number increased to just over 12,000 by 1974, and, by 1984, that figure jumped to about 15,500. The 1990s have seen student enrollment remain steady at around 16,000. More recently, growth in other areas has occurred. For example, WSU ranks third among Ohio's state-assisted colleges and public universities in sponsored research.

As the university approached the last part of the 20th century, rapid growth and innovations were paving the way to meet the needs of students and the region heading into a new millennium.

Major research initiatives were launched and centers established that focused on pressing issues of the times: from studying Gulf War syndrome to the mysteries of the brain, from information technology and development to virtual reality and visualization.

And, with a Campus Master Plan firmly in place, new construction and renovations continued to change the campus landscape and architecture, providing leading edge teaching and learning technology and meeting the needs of students wired for a new century.
