The SLP empowers students to take part in the discussions about their formal education at Clemson.  You can locate the Gen Z results and resources from students this page on our current "Gen Z" students, with

resources from a student research project covering three semesters of information gathering. Find information on active learning, learning preferences and other topics from Clemson students.  Email to schedule an offering for your college or department.
