The NAFEO-Amesite HBCU Alliance now includes:
The members have joined NAFEO’s Center for Opportunity, Excellence and Equity (COEE), an economic mobility engine that NAFEO has committed to support with a $30 million fundraising effort to bring online learning resources to a first group of NAFEO’s constituents, including HBCUs and PBIs.
Members of NAFEO’s COEE will have the opportunity to utilize NAFEO’s planned learning management system, powered by the Amesite platform which leverages the latest technological disruptor that powers ChatGPT, GPT-3. NAFEO members collectively enroll more than 700,000 students, and have over 7 million living alumni, all of whom are anticipated to benefit from the COEE.
Lezli Baskerville, Esq., CEO of NAFEO, stated, “We are growing this Alliance to deliver cutting-edge online learning to our members with the goal of delivering millions of effective and affordable eLearning opportunities. From workforce development to durable skills like business communications and teambuilding, we aim to deliver skills that will enable learners to secure good jobs and launch sustainable businesses. These programs will not only enable our colleges universities to build their storied brands, but also advance their constituencies economically. I am incredibly excited to see more and more universities take advantage of this opportunity to leverage NAFEO's COEE and deploy effective upskilling to their learners.”
Dr. Ann Marie Sastry, Founder & CEO of Amesite, commented, “We are very pleased with the new entrants to the Alliance, and are thrilled to increase the potential impact we can have. With the integration of generative AI technology to complement our own tools, we are enabling our Customers to deliver at scale, since learners on the platform can have questions answered, get help with content generation and view fresh content, 24/7. Our enterprise-scale platform was built to serve organizations with a need to scale – just like NAFEO’s 106 HBCUs and 81 PBIs and we’re honored to be NAFEO’s technology partner.”
