Oxley Family Scholarship in Engineering

Dwight and Patricia Oxley support programs in engineering, athletics and music at Wichita State University. Dwight is a retired physician, formerly chief of pathology at Wesley Medical Center. Patricia is a community volunteer.

Recognizing the importance of engineering as a profession, the Oxleys established the Oxley Family Scholarship in Engineering in 2011. They believe that an education in engineering is useful for a wide variety of professional careers, and that WSU has a well-deserved reputation for excellence in educating engineers.
