LOS ANGELES — Loyola Marymount University President Timothy Law Snyder, Ph.D., will take the stage on Tuesday, March 7, at SXSW EDU in Austin, Texas, to discuss how Gen Z’s activism is holding higher education institutions accountable in unprecedented ways.
Snyder will present “In Students We Trust: The Solidarity Generation” at 12:30 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center, where educators from across the country will gather for the four-day event that fosters innovation and learning within the industry.
An educator, mathematician, and academic administrator at Jesuit institutions for more than 30 years, Snyder refers to Gen Z as “the Solidarity Generation” – a group emboldened by its profound care for one another, proclivity for purpose, and its interconnectivity. As the most diverse generation in American history, the Solidarity Generation’s zeal for unity and social justice is challenging the status quo, he shares, and those in higher education have a responsibility to meet the moment and partner with them in transforming our world.
Snyder’s research interests include the education of Millennials and Gen Z (#Solidarities), computational mathematics, data structures, design and analysis of algorithms, geometric probability, digital signal processing, airline flight safety, and HIV diagnosis and prevention.
WHAT: LMU President Timothy Law Snyder will discuss how Gen Z’s activism is holding higher education institutions accountable at SXSW EDU.
WHERE: Austin Convention Center Ballroom G, 500 E. Cesar Chavez St., Austin, Texas.
WHEN: Tuesday, March 7, 2023, from 12:30 to 1 p.m.
