About Meghan

Photo by Ashley Sullivan

I've loved school and learning since kindergarten, maybe even before that. My love for learning has not gone away. After four years at Chapman University, I pursued a career in student affairs and completed my master's work in higher education at the University of Arizona. I love school so much, I went back for round three and am completing my doctoral degree in higher education leadership and policy at Vanderbilt University.  

My love for learning doesn’t stop at my personal educational pursuits. I want to help others build empowering learning environments. In 2014, I started researching Generation Z and how they will impact the landscape of higher education. In 2016, I co-authored the book Generation Z Goes to College, which discusses research and trends related to the post-Millennial generation. While my work with Generation Z started in the field of education, the findings have found great use in other industries as Gen Z begins to enter the workforce. 

My passion is creating environments that inspire and facilitate learning and development. As a speaker, author, special projects manager, and consultant, my goal is to help others learn, grow, and succeed. How can I help you or your organization learn, grow, and succeed? 


GENERATION Z

 
 

OUR GEN Z Story

In 2013, Dr. Corey Seemiller and I started our journey studying Generation Z with conversations at our staff retreat. What started as a few Google searches, turned into our first study, the Generation Z Goes to College study, in 2014 to better understand the post-Millenial generation. The Generation Z Goes to College study engaged 1200+ Generation Z college students from 15 institutions across the country. The findings of our study led to our book, Generation Z Goes to CollegeIn 2017, we launched our second study, the Generation Z Stories Project, a qualitative study that collected 2,200+ open-ended responses from members of Generation Z. The Generation Z Stories Project findings will be included in our coming work. 

As we continue to learn and write, we love working with professionals, companies, and organizations across the country who want to learn more about Generation Z.

Corey and I share our current work, upcoming events, news, and publications on our website GenerationZGoestoCollege.com. Stay tuned for some upcoming work soon!

There's no doubt that Corey and I love talking about Generation Z. But those conversations don't have to end when the presentation session is over. Follow us on Twitter and continue the conversation about Gen Z.
