This August D’Youville College will host an all-campus development day to foster a broad-based discussion on engagement, retention, empowerment, and student success among Generation Z students. The day is in part a response to the bestselling book The Coddling of the American Mind, by Lukianoff and Haidt (2018). We will spend the day unpacking portions of this book to address the deficit mindsets on Gen Z. We hope to offer an optimistic and supportive outlook of Gen Z for our faculty and administrators as we prepare the college landscape to best serve this population of students. The day will include a keynote speaker, faculty presentations, roundtable sessions, and a multigenerational panel discussion.
