Bridging the Gap: Cross-generational Perspectives on Diversity in Global Education
From baby boomers to generation z - what perspectives do diverse generations bring to the academy? Research shows that demographic groups belonging to specific generations define, approach and apply diversity and inclusion uniquely. As educators and administrators committed to supporting students, we must utilize various modes of knowledge and practice to enhance student experiences. How are methods, customary strategies and research across generations being utilized to enhance student success? What are the global implications of cross-generational scholarly work and university initiatives? How can research on this topic inform future programs, policies and the creation of resources?
