Meet the 2016 ASACCU Conference Keynote Speakers

Tim Clydesdale is professor of sociology at The College of New Jersey. A first-generation college graduate, he earned his baccalaureate degree at Wheaton College (IL), and completed his PhD at Princeton University. After two years of teaching at Gordon College, Clydesdale joined The College of New Jersey, where he has also served as department chair, faculty senator, and faculty representative to the Board of Trustees. He has been invited to speak about his research at more than 50 colleges, universities, and scholarly associations across the U.S. His research on the post-high school transition culminated in The First Year Out: Understanding American Teens after High School (University of Chicago Press, 2007). His evaluation of an 88-campus, Lilly Endowment initiative, The Purposeful Graduate: Why Colleges Must Talk to Students about Vocation, was published in May 2015 by the University of Chicago Press. Presently, he is wrapping up a collaborative project on the Changing Spirituality of Emerging Adults that included a national survey of twentysomethings in America, in-depth interviews with more than 200 young adults, and ethnographic study of 11 congregations that attract scores of young adults. The co-authored book from that study is titled: The Twentysomething Soul: Understanding the Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Young Adults.
