Millennial Generation
  • Colleges and universities will buzz with
    activity, change, new pressures, and new
    arguments. School spirit and the quality of
    college life (dorms, food, library reading rooms)
    will enjoy an upswing, fueled by fussy Boomer
    parents who will have more than the usual trouble
    letting go. Grades, honor codes, internet
    behavior, and cheating on exams will all become
    major issues.
  • Strauss Howe 2000

The Millennial Generation
As a group, Millennials are unlike any other
youth generation in living memory. They are more
numerous, more affluent, better educated, and
more ethnically diverse. More important they are
beginning to manifest a wide array of positive
social habitsOver the next decade, the
Millennial Generation will entirely recast image
of youth as downbeat and alienated to upbeat and
engaged. Howe Strauss, 2000

Astins Theory of Involvement
  • The involved student one who devotes
    considerable energy to academics, spends much
    time on campus, participates actively in student
    organizations and activities, and interacts often
    with faculty (Astin, 1984)
  • More you are involved more you learn

    their time

    extracurricular load, often doing no more than is
    necessary

Degrees of Participation

    adults decision-making is shared between young
    people and adults
  • 7) Young people-initiated and directed young
    people initiate and direct a project or program
    and adults are only in a supportive role.
  • 6) Adult-initiated, shared decisions with young
    people project or programs are initiated by
    adults but decision making is shared with young
    people.
  • 5) Consulted and informed young people give
    advice on projects or programs designed and run
    by adults
  • 4) Assigned but informed young people are
    assigned a specific role and are informed about
    how and why they are being involved.
  • 3) Tokenism young people appear to be given a
    voice, but in fact have little or no choice.
  • 2) Decoration young people are used to help or
    bolster a cause in a relatively indirect way,
    although adults do not pretend that the cause is
    inspired by young people.

    support causes and pretend that the causes are
    inspired by young people.
