   Student Portraits Symposium

The Student Portraits Symposium, sponsored by University Information Services, Data, Analytics and Institutional Research and the Division of Student Affairs, is an annual gathering of faculty, staff and students to share data and best practices impacting retention and student success.

The eighth annual Student Portraits Symposium, held on May 2, 2018, addressed the topic of Future Proofing UNT Graduates.

Ryan Jenkins, a noted speaker and author who helps organizations gain clarity around Millennials and Generation Z, served as the keynote speaker. Jenkins provided insightful guides into the mindset of the younger generations and offered strategies to help UNT prepare for future student populations, which included:

  1. Teach adaptively. The Information Age has individualized the classroom. Achieve agility in order to respond to the individual learner.
  2. Communication. Use visuals and video. Help Generation Z visualize themselves taking the action you want.
  3. Technology. Enhance the student experience. The impact your processes, procedures and policies have on students.
