Promoting Success Among Gen Z Students

Feb 12, 2024 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This February, the divisions of Student Affairs and Academic Affairs are pleased to offer faculty and staff two professional development opportunities on the topics of Generation Z in higher ed and in the workplace. Gen Z (aka iGen) is the second largest living generation in the United States after millennials. Born between 1997-2012, they make up the majority of our student population and a sizable number of employees.

What makes Gen Z special and how do we best teach, mentor, and work with them? Come find out through these two engaging presentations.

In this session, attendees will identify general characteristics of Gen Z students and their development, reflect on similarities and differences among Gen Z students and other generations of students, and apply insights to the educational contexts in which they work.

Lunch will be available starting at 11:30 a.m.

For planning purposes, please RSVP by Monday, February 5.

Session Presenters:

Slandie Dieujuste, PhD, Vice President for Student Affairs
Chris Hakala, PhD, Director for the Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship and Professor of Psychology
Kathy Neville, EdD, Associate Professor and Program Director, PhD in Educational Leadership
Kari Taylor, PhD, Associate Professor and Program Director, Student Affairs Administration
