Pope Center

On November 28th 2018 we formally named the Multicultural Center the William “Pope” Wright Student Center. This renaming was to continue to honor the 44 years of service that Pope Wright dedicated to this campus and it's students.  

Wright began teaching at UW-Superior in 1971, and was the first African-American professor at the university. He was an artist and mentor to a countless number of students at UW-Superior, doing everything from advising the Black Student Union to being the Director of the Minority Affairs Office. He was known for always finding time for students of all backgrounds and cultures. 

The goal of the center is to provide a welcoming space and programming for underrepresented students on campus.
