Generation Y-Millennials between U.S. and Texas

Generation Y (sometimes referred to as "Millennials “or "Echo Boomers") refers to the cohort of individuals born, roughly, between 1980 and 1994.

Millennials, like other generations, are shaped by the events, leaders, developments and trends of their time.

What is Student Engagement? between U.S. and Texas

“Student-engagement theory had its origin in the work of Astin (1984,1985), Pace (1984), and Kuh and his colleagues (Kuh, Schuh, Whitt, and Associates, 1991; Kuh, Whitt, and Strange, 1989). Although these writers used different terminology to describe their concepts of student engagement, their views were based on the simple, but powerful, premise that students learn from what they do in college. Research has strongly supported this assumption, indicating that engagement is positively related to objective and subjective measures of gains in general abilities and critical thinking.”

Engagement is a buzzword within higher education and is a much-studied topic

Creating a seamless learning environment


Why is This So Important? between U.S. and Texas

Key Longitudinal Programming Opportunity: These students are the middle of the pipeline and are often overlooked

Undergraduate students (pre-health) and undecided students are an important audience because they are at the point of career decision-making and are looking to build their resumes/network

We will be able to see results much faster with these students than younger audiences

Can access these students by connecting with academic advisors, teachers, the Career Center- should be a mechanism you use to help cultivate the undecided students

the health professions.”
