FLORISSANT, Missouri – (September 27, 2023) – Relearnit, Inc.® (Relearnit) today announces that Bill Lowery has been named the new President of the company. Lowery succeeds Ronald Wagner, PhD, the founder and visionary of Relearnit since 2008.

With more than a decade of experience in higher education and online learning, Lowery brings his passion for expanding access to affordable and career-relevant education, both within the US and globally.

I was especially drawn to Relearnit’s Academics FirstTM approach, which focuses on identifying, developing and delivering online degree programs that tie to high-demand professions.
“At the same time, we choose to partner with small, private universities, many of which are faith-based, because they provide their students with a personalized educational experience with real world applications,” continues Lowery. “We only support programs that meet the key criteria of quality, relevance, and impact. In today’s educational environment, this is the approach both students and future employers need.”

I firmly believe that academic expertise and business acumen must go hand-in-hand to ensure success for our partners. Bill brings significant expertise and a strong skill set to the job, having led many complex and impactful efforts with leaders in the online education sector. Most importantly, he has a relentless focus on driving student and university success. As I move into the chairman role, I am confident in a bright future for Relearnit with Bill at the helm.”
