REVITALIZING A WESTERN LANDMARK PAUL WRIGHT GYM RENOVATION Credited as being the highest collegiate gym in the world, the Paul Wright Gym is named after Western’s late professor, coach, and athletic director, Paul Wright, and is a flagship space for Western athletics and recreational activities. The PAUL WRIGHT GYM RENOVATION will improve the main entryway, Hall of Fame Room and add new student services like a nutrition center.

Western seeks private support to renovate and expand this 68-year-old facility. Doing so will position Western to improve student-athlete recruitment and retention, accommodate an array of current athletic programs, and the creation of new programs.

“ Athletics and academics make a transforming educational partnership that prepares students for unmatched success in careers and life. They are an integral part of Western’s DNA, from which my husband Rich (’83) and I have both personally benefited. We are proud to have committed one of the largest gifts of our lives to establish and endow the Joanie Mancini Scholarship Fund to benefit the Women’s Swimming and Diving Team. Join us in elevating student-athletes to become tomorrow’s leaders!”
