Meet Thought Leader Mark White, at Campus Connections 2017 as He Uncovers Best Practices for Engaging the Next Generation of Students

Join us for our inaugural Campus Connections Conference, based on the successful MBA Connections Conference we’ve hosted for the past 12 years!  This is the premier event where career service professionals and talent acquisition experts who actively recruit undergraduate student talent gather to debate issues, share best practices and participate in moderated discussions about today’s industry.

As the thought leaders for both undergrad recruitment and career services, we’re excited to introduce a fellow leader and the speaker for this year’s Campus Connections Conference.

Mark White previously served as the Director of Education and Outreach at Mindset Digital in Columbus, Ohio, the Academic Principal at the Beijing National Day School in Beijing, China, and the superintendent of the Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools in Gahanna, Ohio.

Currently, he’s an author and speaker who consults on behalf of the International Center for Leadership in Education and writes about disruptions and trends in American education. He is the co-author of What’s in Your Space?, a book published by Corwin Press that discusses ways to combine Gen Z learning styles, technology, and global skills in a 21st century learning space.  He’s working on his second book entitled Leading Schools in Disruptive Times, which documents the disruptions currently reshaping American schools.

At Campus Connections 2017, Mark will deliver a keynote entitled "Understanding the Next Generation of Students.” In this high energy, engaging 60-minute presentation, he’ll highlight why Gen Z has a different view of the world—and what employers and career service professionals at all levels can do to more effectively reach them and stay ahead of the changes reshaping our schools and businesses.  You’ll also hear about the key areas that are most affecting the next generation of students such as:

  • The effect of screen interaction on learning style
  • The global interests of Gen Z
  • What business and universities can do to adjust their practices and learning spaces
  • The explosive growth of knowledge and its impact on Gen Z’s future in a global society
  • How to effectively market to Gen Z

Mark has a proven record of success. During his tenure as superintendent, the district earned the state’s highest academic ratings and implemented a wide variety of global skills and technology into its curriculum. He was a member of the Dell Platinum Advisory Council, a select group of CEO’s who advised high level Dell officials on technology trends, and he was nominated to be a Summer Fellow at Vanderbilt University. During his thirty-six-year career, he has been a consultant to both the College Board and ACT and has served on two national education reform committees.
