The survey results, collected with the help of FTI Consulting, a global business advisory firm, paint a picture of what researchers are calling “Generation Z,” which is defined as “teens between the ages of 16 and 19.” To tap into the minds of this particular demographic, the school rounded up responses from 1,015 participants during the month of October. The survey takers were equally divided into two groups and asked questions either by landline phone, or on the Internet.
The key themes of the poll gauged Generation Z’s views on the future of higher education, civic engagement, public policy, technology, financial literacy, and personal aspirations. “Generation Z exhibits a strong entrepreneurial, independent, and self-sustaining spirit, with a driving motivation to map out their own futures,” according to the school’s recap of the small pool of data. “They are highly progressive when it comes to social policy, with strong support for universal healthcare, relaxed immigration laws, and equal rights for all people—regardless of sexual orientation.”
