Workshop Description:

Around 2003 a new type of student started applying for college—the Millennials.   These students were different – demanding, entitled, embracing technology – and the education system was not quite prepared for the countless life activities in which they were engaged.


Fast forward to 2017... The oldest Millennial has now entered late-early adulthood and we find another type of student presenting themself in the halls of higher education. As quickly as the term Millennial became Generation Y – often because that was one of their favourite questions! – there is now evidence pointing to a new generation, namely Generation Z.


In this workshop we will discuss the generations most at play – Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millenials, and even the upcoming Centennials (Gen A). Through lecture and dialogue, together we will explore strategies for satisfying our student stakeholders’ needs as we continue to offer successful learning and advising experiences for all our varying demographics.
