Who are today’s college students, really? What do they think? What do they want? How do they behave? When do they sleep? The answers are likely different than someone of an older generation might think. Join Arthur Levine, co-author of “Generation on a Tightrope, A Portrait of Today’s College Student” to better understand the students on your campuses and in your classrooms, how they perceive the world around them, and how well-equipped they are to thrive. Based on a multi-year, multi-method, national study, the new insights into today’s students have profound implications for the work of college faculty and administrators.

Arthur Levine is the sixth president of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. Before his appointment, he was president and professor of education at Teachers College, Columbia University. He also served as chair of the higher education program, chair of the Institute for Educational Management, and senior lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Dr. Levine is the author or co-author of ten books, dozens of articles, and a series of reports for the Education Schools Project on the preparation of school leaders, teachers, and education researchers. His most recent book is “Generation on a Tightrope: A Portrait of Today’s College Student” (with Diane Dean, 2012).
