Alumni and Giving

Outstanding Alumni Award

For many years, the Wright State University Alumni Association coordinated the Outstanding Alumni Awards, which allowed each college or school at the university to recognize former students who have gone on to make exceptional contributions to their professional fields while giving back to their communities. Although this award is no longer available, past recipients are listed below and their contributions to the field of psychology continue to inspire us.
