Minding the Millennial Gap
In this new world post covid, we are all too familiar with change. The economic climate is changing rapidly and with that many industries are facing new and worsened challenges - including ours. Not directly tied to Covid, but a major hurdle our workforce and many universities and colleges are facing today is the Millennial Gap. Unlike their baby boomer elders who had multiple children early in their lifetime, the majority of Millennials have opted for fewer or no children, and are having them much later in life. This means that there are far fewer children turning into adults entering the workforce or attending a higher education institution, leaving huge gaps that are unable to be filled - this is the Millennial Gap. 
Read the full story for interviews with your peers in University settings about how this is affecting their programs and the whole industry.
