    Clarus Gen Z

    As the post-millennial Generation makes its way into college and the corporate world, it’s imperative for institutions and organizations to holistically grasp and comprehend not just the way Z’s learn, retain, and comprehend information, but the events that have shaped them and who they are. Our research covers the types of environments this generation thrives in, while learning and how colleges and companies can adapt and conform to meet the needs of Generation Z. The future students and professionals are coming, are we designing with them in mind yet?
