Kim Goldenberg, M.D., 1998-2007
Dr. Goldenberg came to Wright State as a faculty member and chief of the new General Internal Medicine division in 1983, eventually serving as dean of the medical school from 1990 to 1998 before becoming president following the death of President Harley E. Flack.
During his tenure as president, the university experienced tremendous transformation, including the creation of a nationally recognized first-year student experience, a broader and more innovative research enterprise, one of the strongest enrollment growth rates in the state, and a successful fundraising campaign in place. Student enrollment and retention increased significantly, and total research awards rose to $63 million.
Upon his retirement from the presidency, Dr. Goldenberg became President Emeritus and returned to the School of Medicine faculty as a professor.
