Why are young professionals drawn to America’s Environmental College? ‘Sustainability, I thought, was done very authentically here.’

What does it mean to be a millennial? It’s a question that has been on the mind of Unity College President Dr. Melik Peter Khoury as he has noticed the number of employees representing that generation has grown immensely over the years. In fact, roughly 20 percent of Unity College’s workforce is made up of millennials who hold jobs as faculty, leaders, and everything in between.

Noticing this influx of millennials, Dr. Khoury had some questions: Why do millennials choose to work at Unity College? What does the College do well, and what could it improve upon? What, as employees, is important to them?

So he came up with an idea. He would get a group of his millennial employees together, serve them some avocado toast and kale smoothies, and get some answers to these questions while recording it all for a podcast.
