Welcome to Pensole Lewis College
Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design is the pipeline HBCU for career education and professional development in the design industry. We are the source for creative vision and progress to push the culture forward
— beyond what’s visible.
“HBCUs have some of the brightest minds in our country, but lack access to design education.
We’re here to change that.”
-Dr. D’Wayne Edwards,
Founder of PENSOLE
We exist to lead & empower the progressive creative to create a better individual and collective future.
Implementing our learn-by-doing philosophy, we prepare the largest talent pool of designers to enter the industry and strive to make it better for the next generation.
Pensole Lewis College will be the nation’s first-ever reinstated HBCU. Opening March 2022, Pensole Lewis College will offer free tuition and programs across design, sustainability, business, STEM, and more, serving young Black creatives across industries.
