Convocation 2013

generation me cover

Renowned psychological researcher Dr. Jean Twenge, author of Generation Me: Why Today's Young Americans Are More Confident, Assertive, Entitled--and More Miserable Than Ever Before. Dr. Twenge will discuss data from 1.3 million young people and what it reveals about teaching today's college students.

 Twenge

Dr. Twenge writes, "We live in a time when high self-esteem is encouraged from childhood, when young people have more freedom and independence than ever, but also far more depression, anxiety, cynicism, and loneliness . . . More than any other generation in history, the children of Baby Boomers are disappointed by what they find when they arrive at adulthood." Dr. Twenge's presentation will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A featuring Chair of Fine Arts, Meg Cranston, Associate Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Heather Joseph-Witham, Adjunct Associate Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Foundation, Rob Spruijt, and Assistant Vice President for Student Success/Dean of Student Affairs, Laura Kiralla.

 

The program concludes with our annual Teaching Excellence Awards celebration, honoring three of Otis’ finest faculty members:  Bill Kelley, Renee Petropoulos, and Harry Mott.

 

Following a community luncheon, all faculty and staff will convene for a special message from President Hoi.
