Event Description

Enroll, Maintain, and Graduate a Unique Class of Students

Gen Z students are coming to college with different expectations from students who have preceded them. They are engaged, driven, and have high expectations for post-college life. Further, they are overwhelmed by cost and fears of debt, desire a more customized college experience, and are keen to gain practical-life experiences. To remain competitive and viable, colleges and universities must move quickly to reevaluate how they provide educational options for Gen Z students.

Get a head start by joining academic services expert Denise Swett to explore this new and unique generation of students and how your institution can meet their high expectations. Keeping in mind your goal to maintain or increase enrollment and retention, Swett will discuss what makes Gen Z so different and what kinds of strategy adjustments you need to make to meet their needs. This discussion will focus on how to modify and shift organizational systems, learning options, degree and certificate selections, and institutional culture.

After attending this instructive session, you will understand both what drives and challenges Gen Z students so that you can proactively design programs and collaborate college-wide to create a culture of success for today’s incoming students. This new generation of student is looking ahead to their future beyond college—make sure your institution is positioned to help them meet their long-term goals.
