The Vermont Connection


Student activism is an ever-developing trend on college campuses. The current generation, Generation Z, started college in 2013. Analyzing literature on student development and how it intersects with the student activist identity reveals what institutions can do to further serve students in a generational context. When characteristics of students from Generation Z are given proper attention, campus administrators can better understand student activism as an identity. As current and new generations matriculate through college, institutions need to continuously challenge their processes and recreate equitable and inclusive spaces for their students.
