Generation Z Goes to College
Generation Z is rapidly replacing Millennials on college campuses. Those born from 1995 through 2010 have different motivations, learning styles, characteristics, skill sets, and social concerns than previous generations. Unlike Millennials, Generation Z students grew up in a recession and are under no illusions about their prospects for employment after college. While skeptical about the cost and value of higher education, they are also entrepreneurial, innovative, and independent learners concerned with effecting social change. Understanding Generation Z’s mindset and goals is paramount to supporting, developing, and educating them through higher education. 2016, Jossey-Bass, 320 pages, ISBN: 978-1119143451
Generation Z Leads
As Generation Z (individuals born from 1995 to 2010) emerges into adulthood, educators will encounter new challenges and opportunities with this new cohort of students. Members of Generation Z have grown up in a very different world from their parents, resulting in unique perspectives and experiences that define this generation. Higher-education experts Dr. Corey Seemiller and Meghan Grace first began studying Generation Z for their book Generation Z Goes to College. They are now offering an even more specialized guide with Generation Z Leads, showcasing ideas and strategies for developing the leadership capacities of Generation Z students. 2017, CreateSpace, 92 pages, ISBN: 978-1456420253

Gen Z Around the World
(forthcoming 2024, Emerald Publishing)
The study of generations offers a unique look at trends in attitudes and behaviors of individuals based on age and stage in life. Generations progress through childhood, adolescence, and adulthood at the same time, experiencing current events and societal factors during the same stage of life. During this stage, a peer personality develops, resulting in members having similar attitudes, preferences, styles, and behaviors. Given the interconnectedness of the world today in that communication, technology, commerce, education, politics, health, travel, and work have become increasingly globalized, there is a much stronger global peer personality of Generation Z than anticipated. This book will offer a look into this peer personality, helping us to expand our capacity to better work with, engage with, supervise, and educate Gen Z around the world.
