Zach ClarkZach Clark, director of Student Activities and Assessment for the Student Cooperative Association, will co-facilitate two workshops at the Pennsylvania Association of Councils of Trustees spring conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on April 12 and 13, 2018.

PACT brings together all of the councils of trustees within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, and, according to its Trustee Handbook, “educates trustees on national trends in higher education, apprises trustees of issues facing the State System, establishes a network to convey trustees’ views to the Chancellor and Board of Governors, provides professional development opportunities to trustees in order to enhance their service to the State System, and informs and updates trustees about academic programs and administrative policies of the State System universities.”

In meeting this mission, Clark is pleased to offer the following workshops collaboratively with Kathleen Howley, the State System’s deputy vice chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs.

The first workshop, titled “Gen Z in the Workforce,” will provide the State System’s undergraduate student leaders with an overview of the different generations in the workforce, as well as recommendations for finding success in a multi-generational workplace.

The second workshop, titled “Our Generations of Students: Z and Beyond,” will provide the State System’s trustees and university leaders with updates regarding our newly-arrived Generation Z college students, while also reflecting on how our curricula, pedagogies, policies, programs, services, and facilities are meeting the needs of these students and those that follow them.

Clark is a 2007 graduate from Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in history education, and a 2009 graduate from IUP, where he earned his master’s degree in student affairs in higher education. He has 14 years of experience in student activities management and is currently celebrating his ninth year at IUP.
