Schrader and Spina are both engineers by trade. Schrader told Spina that she thinks engineers have a “different perspective” on leading a university.
“I’m excited to welcome a fellow engineer here at Wright State,” Spina told Schrader.
In a meeting with Schrader, Sinclair president Steven Johnson expressed interest in enhancing the partnerships between Wright State and Sinclair.
Sinclair already has 1,700 students that are preparing to transfer to Wright State, Johnson told Schrader.
The two discussed the possibility of Wright State having a presence on Sinclair’s campus and joint cabinet and boards of trustees meetings, according to WSU. The schools previously held joint meetings from 2010 to 2012.

“I think that’s a good idea,” Schrader said. “Let’s think about bringing that back.”
In June, Schrader tweeted a photo from a meeting she had with Miami University President Greg Crawford and she has meetings scheduled with Clark State Community College president Jo Alice Blondin and Central State University president Cynthia Jackson-Hammond.
