Wright State has a proud history of participation in the awards, as Dr.  Carol Loranger, Ph.D., chair of the Department of English Language and Literatures serves the Peace Prize steering committee and the selection committee for the Holbrooke Distinguished Achievement Award.

Recognizing the need to showcase a variety of works related to the Peace Prize, Dr. Loranger worked with University Libraries’ Digital Services department to create a collection in CORE Scholar compiling the works of the winners and honorees. CORE Scholar is Wright State University’s institutional repository, dedicated to collecting the scholarly output of the University as well as local, regional and WSU heritage material.  For more information about Digital Services’ involvement in the Peace Prize collection, check out their blog, Knowledge Exchange or explore the collection at: http://corescholar.libraries.wright.edu/dlpp/.
