About Giving to Wright State University–Lake Campus

Since its inception, the Lake Campus has been the fortunate recipient of alumni, friends, and corporate support. Our ability to continue to serve the educational needs of Auglaize, Darke, Mercer, and Van Wert counties, as well as the residents of the surrounding areas, is a testament to the generous nature of the residents and businesses who believe in the academic mission of the Wright State University–Lake Campus.

The Western Ohio Educational Foundation (WOEF) is grateful to the community for its continued support. The WOEF board operates under the auspices of a board of trustees whose members are respected business and community men and women. Members share a common interest in the Lake Campus’s academic programs, community service, success, and, most importantly, the students. This vision is realized through campus housing and the numerous scholarships available each year.

Where to Give: Priority Fund

Advanced Manufacturing Center

Wright State University envisions a state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing and robotics teaching center, developed with local partners to ensure and achieve new economic growth in technology and manufacturing right here in Ohio. The Workforce Development Business Enterprise Center (WDBEC) has teamed with local economic development organizations and other schools to build certified coursework in robotics, process control, mechanical and electrical systems, and more. The WDBEC's focus can meet the employment and talent gap that exists between engineering and production in many facilities, increasing the growth and quality of our workforce. The campus has experienced strong enrollment in the mechanical engineering program, but an expanded value-added partnership between industry and the university can increase available talent in multiple skill areas. It will allow us a more targeted curriculum and to be forward-thinking when considering future expansion.

Your funds will benefit the local region and help fill a critical industry need:

  • Advanced manufacturing investments, including automation and robotics, are leading economic sectors and job growth in West Central Ohio.
  • New technology and engineering developments require large flexible industrial spaces to accommodate equipment, learning styles, and changing product trends.
  • Employers require increased skilled certifications, degrees, and experience for their operations.
  • A partnership between private and industry and university resources allows for greater innovation and valuable services to improve learning outcomes.
  • The new facility attracts both new emerging students into the pipeline while allowing ideal space for retraining.
