Today's Campus: Four Generations in One Work Place
Many of today’s campuses have up to four different generations of people living, learning and working together. It is important that student affairs professionals understand the challenges and rewards that come with multiple generations being on campus and how to use this information in creating supportive and engaging working and learning environments. This presentation will share the results of a multi-institutional research study of generations on campuses in the USA, which measured staff attitudes toward living, learning, and working together. Participants will be encouraged to share experiences, strategies, and recommendations from their campuses of working across generations.
