Jean Twenge delivering a lecture  
media coverage

With each new class of students, college faculty and staff have a front-row seat in the theater of generational change. iGen Consulting can help you understand how the young generation differs from their predecessors – and how to teach them, mentor them, and help them grow into well-rounded adults.

At iGen Consulting, we speak the language of education – it’s where we got our start. A faculty member since 2001, Dr. Twenge teaches undergraduate and graduate courses at San Diego State University. She has seen herself what works and what doesn’t in today’s classroom, and has spoken with many student affairs professionals about the challenges they face as well.

Dr. Twenge’s talks to education audiences often fall into one of the following categories:

  • A keynote at a conference of academic services professionals
  • A faculty development seminar at a high school, college, or university, with discussion of classroom strategies
  • A seminar for student life staff, with discussion of advising and mentoring
  • A talk for students as a supplement to classes or as part of a student research conference
  • An all-university lecture for students, faculty, and staff

The usual format is an hour-long talk on generational differences and their applications, with 20-30 minutes for questions. A half-day workshop includes the talk, Q&A, and small-group discussions on how to understand and apply generational issues.

Dr. Twenge has visited more than 60 colleges, universities, high schools, and trade schools to conduct faculty development seminars and speak to student life staff. She has given keynote addresses at major conferences for education professionals, including the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), the National Association of Student Personnel Administators (NASPA), the National Conference on Law and Higher Education, the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO), the Association of Public Land-Grant Colleges (APLU), and the National Association of College and University Chaplains.
