At SPS this fall, all courses, other than pre-established online courses, will be offered face-to-face in our New York City classrooms. Some of these face-to-face courses will be offered in the HyFlex format to ensure that all of our students can make progress toward their degree requirements, if faced with delays due to student visas or vaccination effectiveness wait times.

Leveraging Multigenerational Workforce Strategies in Higher Education

Dr. Edna Chun, Lecturer in the M.S. Human Capital Management program, has co-authored Leveraging Multigenerational Workforce Strategies in Higher Education, an in-depth examination of the impact of generational and ageist framing in behavioral interactions of classroom dynamics, departmental culture, and workplace outcomes in higher education.

In the wake of economic uncertainty resulting from the pandemic, higher education institutions are challenged as perhaps in no other time in U.S. history with maximizing talent resources. Dr. Chun's new book provides a clear pathway to implementing comprehensive HR and diversity talent strategies that ensure equity in employment decisions, diminish stereotypical ageist expectations that can influence organizational outcomes, and build an inclusive, multigenerational culture that values the contributions of all members.  

Based on empirical studies, qualitative research, and in-depth interviews with faculty and administrators, Leveraging Multigenerational Workforce Strategies in Higher Education addresses the creation of leading-edge multigenerational strategies in the higher education workplace via the lens of institutional context and first-person narratives. HR and higher education leaders and faculty will benefit from the proposed strategies to combat structural inequality, eliminate process-based discriminatory practices, and optimize intergenerational talent. 

At the conclusion, you will gain practical insight into best-in-class HR and diversity policies and strategies in higher education that will help overcome generational and ageist barriers, tap into the wealth of intergenerational expertise, and bolster institutional capacity to educate and inspire the new centennial generation of students.
