Much has been said, studied, and stereotyped about the Millennial generation, but what of Generation Z, those born in the early 1990s to mid 2000s? According to Forbes, Generation Z made up 25 percent if the U.S. population in 2015, which makes the cohort larger than the Millennial and Baby Boomer generations.

A seasoned educator, researcher, and speaker on Generation Z, Seemiller has been featured in a wide range of publications around the world, including NPR and The New York Times. Her TED Talk on Generation Z at TEDxDayton has garnered more than 100,000 views.
Seemiller is the author of “Generation Z Goes to College,” “Generation Z Leads,” and her most recent book, “Generation Z: A Century in the Making,” is gaining nationwide acclaim and recognition.
With more than 20 years of working in a college setting, Seemiller is currently a faculty member in the Department of Leadership Studies in Education and Organizations at Wright State University.
Seemiller’s PAC presentation “Who is Generation Z?: Determined. Open-Minded. Compassionate,” will be held from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
