Survey finds Generation Z to be motivated lot
Boston Globe - 11/18/2014
A new survey by Northeastern University found that a majority of Generation Z — those between the ages of 16 and 19 — is very self-motivated and seeks to craft its own future through higher education.
The survey of young people throughout the country is the fourth in a series by the university, which focuses on the future of higher education and its relationship to the global economy, according to a statement by Northeastern.
The university has conducted surveys on other generations and constituencies in the past, but this is the first time it has focused on the Gen Z population, said Joseph E. Aoun, president of the school.
