Did you know that a former WSU President served as an official for the 1996 Olympic sailing trials? This is just one of the many extraordinary accomplishments that made WSU’s third President Paige E. Mulhollan a dynamic leader and fascinating person. Mulhollan’s presidency (1985-1994) changed the vision, direction, and physical attributes of the campus, and his warm connection with students and staff left a lasting impression. Though Dr. Mulhollan passed away in June of 2012, his legacy remains in and around Wright State University.
To learn more about Dr. Paige E. Mulhollan, check out this new exhibit in the Alumni Case on the first floor of Dunbar Library (near the elevators), now through the end of the year.
