Biography

Alexis is a graduate of the University of Delaware, holding a Masters in Economic Education and Entrepreneurship and a B.A. in Anthropology Education.  She coordinates the statewide "Teach Children to Save Day" event, co-sponsored by the CEEE and the Delaware Bankers Association.  Concurrently, she supports team curriculum development for specialized programs.  She previously taught social studies at Campus Community School, where she led curriculum design and instruction in the project-based classroom laboratory connected with Wesley College.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.4 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Fund, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Lerner College faculty - like Anu Sivaraman, who is among Social Media Marketing Magazine’s “Top 100 Marketing Professors on Twitter” and MBAprograms.org’s “Top 50 Marketing Professors on Twitter” - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer experience-driven learning and emphasize evidence-based analytics methods to enrich the student experience. Here, finance students visit New York City’s financial districts for a first-hand look at markets trading and to meet with UD alumni.

Charles W. Horn, AS75, and wife Patricia, recently made a $3 million commitment to enhance and expand entrepreneurial studies.
