Have you ever wondered how different generations think, especially those in Generation Y (11 to 29)? Do you have children this age? Co-workers? Grandchildren? Are you one yourself?
On Jan. 15, come hear Wake Forest Provost Rogan Kersh ('86) discuss the distinctive characteristics of the members of Generation Y (contrasting with their Gen X, Baby Boomer and 'Greatest Generation' peers) and explore their readiness to be leaders. Provost Kersh has done extensive research about the generations, even living in a dormitory while a professor at NYU to forward his research.
Provost Kersh was in the first class of Reynolds scholars at Wake Forest and received his Ph.D. in political science from Yale. In his 15 years of teaching at Yale, Syracuse, and NYU, he has won four university-wide teaching awards. Before returning to WFU, he was associate dean of NYU's Wagner School of Public Service, where he also was a professor of public policy.
The Wake Forest Charlotte community is ready to welcome Provost Kersh home! Please join us at the Charlotte Center at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 15 for a welcome reception, followed by his talk at 6:30. Let's show our new Provost
a big Queen City welcome!
