Pryor II, Vice President for Student Engagement at Stella and Charles Guttman Community College, CUNY, is a groundbreaking veteran of higher education who has dedicated his career to directly combatting the low college graduation rates of marginalized communities by developing data-based academic programming, diversity and inclusion initiatives, student-centred curricula, and continuous professional development training for faculty and staff members.
