Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company Professorship - Rex Karsten

Proceeds from the endowment support professional development activities for students, curriculum innovation and enhancement, acquisition of instructional resources, scholarly and practical research, and seminars and workshops led by executives and business professionals.
