Today's Students

Last Updated 01/05/2024

Refers to a term defined by Higher Learning Advocates. "Today’s students are more diverse in age, race, and income level than any previous generation of college students. They’re more mobile and may not live on campus. Most participate in the workforce, either full-time or part-time. Work and family responsibilities beyond the classroom—whether learning on campus or online—often influence students’ educational goals. Competing priorities and added responsibilities also mean many students struggle to meet their basic needs."
