The Generational Disruption of Community Colleges

NISOD is pleased to announce its second Regional Workshop, to be held on October 13, 2017, at Bergen Community College at the Meadowlands in Lyndhurst, New Jersey and on October 20, 2017 at Austin Community College here in Austin, Texas. Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this one-day workshop designed specifically for community and technical college faculty members.

The Generational Disruption of Community Colleges

Baby Boomers. X’ers. Millennials. And probably soon, America’s next generation. For community colleges, each generation brings unique challenges and unique opportunities for administration; instruction, fundraising and development, alumni relations, human resources, marketing, business and community relations, and every other key component of higher education. Well, this workshop introduces you to the full list of Generational Higher Education Strategies and sends you back to campus with actionable tips and tactics. More importantly, this workshop will help you to clearly decide if you want to bring this training—in even greater depth—to your campus to create a “permanent, comprehensive, systemic, and nimble culture of generational understanding, diversity, and strategies” that ensure the robust future of your college and the success of your students.

The session will be led by Chuck Underwood, one of the half-dozen people who created the field of generational study and author of the most comprehensive book on generational strategies ever published, America’s Generation in the Workplace, Marketplace, and Living Room.

You have two opportunities to attend this workshop.  The first workshop will be held on October 13, 2017 in Lyndhurst, New Jersey.  The second workshop will be held on October 20, 2017 in Austin, Texas.
