Justice Studies professor Gabriel Rubin’s “Gen Z Risk Perceptions: Crisis, Risk and Hope” study on the stresses and dangers surrounding Gen Z and their effects has been featured in The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The Chronicle of Higher Education cites Dr. Rubin’s interviews in which he discovers that though dynamic and pensive, there is a cynicism that restricts Gen Z students’ belief in their own potential.
