“I’m very excited to partner with talented professionals across The College and lead a department with so many compelling stories to tell,” Trexler said. “We’ll continue to focus on delivering exceptional experiences that excite, engage, educate, and empower. Applied knowledge has a ubiquitous influence on professional growth and the financial security of consumers and their communities. As brand stewards and business builders, our team is responsible for communicating the profession’s most universal value.”
