This post is an invitation to the members of the Wharton Undergraduate Class of 1992 who participated in our study and to anyone else who might be interested in our findings and what they mean for individuals, organizations, and society. Welcome, and please comment.
In our extensive survey of the Class of 1992, we asked questions about career prospects and progression, personal values, family, views on the relationship of work with the rest of life, health and religion, civic engagement, and Wharton. We asked these questions in 1992 and again in 2012.
If you are a member of the Class of 1992 and participated in our study you should have received a copy of your “Personal Time Capsule” by now, with your data and your classmates’, gathered in1992 and in 2012. We also included what the Class of 2012 said in response to the same questions. We welcome your comments in response to these questions below or on other reactions and ideas you might have.
- To what did you react most strongly in this report?
- What was most surprising to you?
- What would you like to say to your classmates about what you read?
If you aren’t a member of the Class of 1992, here are two links with information from this study:
- The Table of Contents and selected data from the Personal Time Capsule.
- A brief analysis of some comparisons between the perspectives of the Class of 1992, gathered in 1992, and the Class of 2012, gathered in 2012.
We’ll be posting more on the findings and implications of this research here and in other media in the future, so please subscribe to this Forum for more to come.
