Igniting Brilliance: The HBCU Faculty Fellows Academy

The HBCU Faculty Fellows Academy (HFFA) is turning heads and changing the game! This flagship initiative is lighting the path for HBCU faculty members. Imagine a year-long program that equips educators with the skills they need to conquer the ever-evolving tech landscape. Our dynamic participants (that's right, a select group of 25!) have been chosen – up to 60 hours of professional development, a generous $3500 stipend, and the chance to expand their horizons  through supported travel. Crafted by industry moguls, HBCU faculty, and workforce wizards, HFFA's curriculum is your one-stop-shop for staying ahead in the tech world.

Meet the Visionaries Leading the Way

Two names that need no introduction: Dr. Camesha Whittaker and Dr. Carl Moore.  Dr. Whittaker, our Senior VP of Innovation and Design, is the driving force behind Propel's vision to revolutionize learning. And then we have Dr. Moore, Propel's very own Executive Fellow, contributing his expertise to steer us toward excellence.
