Millennial Edition

Scary, isn’t it, to realize that the those students who entered college in 2000 already have produced the first graduating class to have spent its entire college career in the 21st century.

So colleges and universities are cogitating on the subject of the challenges to higher education that the classes of the ’00 decade bring.

LVAIC is sponsoring “Millenials on Campus: Implications for Design and Delivery of Higher Education Programs and Services,” a day-long discussion with William Strauss, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Friday, January 21, at Cedar Crest College.

“In the ’60s, it was the Boomers,” says Strauss in his book Millenials Rising. “In the ’90s, it was the X-ers. Now it’s the Millenials who are flooding the nation’s college campuses.”

A co-founder of the political satire group Capitol Steps, Strauss is also a playwright, theater director, performer, and speaker. With Neil Howe, he has written five books about generational history, including two about the millennial generation: Millenials Rising (2000) and Millenials Go to College (2003).

The event is free to LVAIC administrators and faculty members, with a nominal charge for lunch.

Please request a registration form from meicr01@moravian.edu or Ext. 1503, and return it by January 19.
