BGSU’s Mary Wrighten lauded for mentorship

Since coming to Bowling Green State University in 1990, Mary Green Wrighten has been one of the driving forces behind an array of programs related to multiculturalism.

She has also “offered outstanding support for colleagues, particularly colleagues of color and those wanting to help Bowling Green fulfill its diversity mission. She works tirelessly to promote social justice for BGSU,” wrote Dr. Sherlon Brown, a professor in the School of Intervention Services.

Wrighten was presented the Faculty Mentor Recognition Award by Faculty Senate on April 9, 2009. Along with the award came a commemorative plaque and $1,000.

In her role as associate professor and multicultural services librarian, Wrighten assists the entire University but especially the ethnic studies department. “Her expert knowledge and professional service has been invaluable to countless numbers of faculty, staff and students as she has assisted with the development of manuscripts, presentations and grant materials,” wrote nominator Dr. Dafina Lazarus Stewart, an assistant professor of higher education and student affairs.

She has also long endeavored to promote her colleagues’ participation in University governance through her own participation in the Africana Faculty and Staff Caucus, of which she is again chair this year.

Wrighten has taught courses in ethnic studies, library science and the Pre-College Enrichment and College Access programs. She also shares her knowledge through frequent presentations at academic conferences, wrote Dr. Lessie Cochran, an associate professor of intervention services.

In 2002, she partnered with faculty from the College of Education and Human Development to present at a Phi Delta Kappa International Education panel session on establishing libraries with South African educators and sharing work with Ukrainian and Kenyan educators.

She is a board member for the Academic Investment in Math and Science (AIMS) program, and has long been a key planner for the annual Africana Studies Colloquium, which gives students from Bowling Green and nationally the opportunity to present their research.

Last year, she helped create a pictorial and historical tribute titled “Images of Me (1950-2008): BGSU Women of Color” for the Women’s Studies 30th anniversary celebration.

“Her teaching, research and service are ethical, professional and exemplary,” Brown wrote. “She exudes a passion for working with and supporting faculty, administrators and students to ensure that whatever the task, it is done in a compassionate manner.”
