Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design is the pipeline HBCU for career education and professional development in the product creation industry. We are the source for creative vision and progress to push the culture forward —  beyond what’s visible.  


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.


We envision an industry where opportunities in business & design - career education, industry placement, and product creation - are available to everyone who prepares for it, not just anyone who can afford it.

“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,

President of Pensole Lewis College
