The Issue of the Homosexual Student on the Christian College Campus.
Hill, Brandon D.
A difficult issue for student affairs professionals at Christian colleges is homosexuality. It is important for Christian student affairs professionals to understand the unique issues homosexual students face, develop programming and resources for homosexual students, and determine appropriate institutional responses to infractions of college rules concerning homosexuality. There is disagreement within the Christian community about the sinfulness of homosexual orientation or practice. Public colleges and universities have recently developed a more tolerant and accepting view of homosexuals on campus in keeping with the U.S. Constitution, which emphasizes equality. At many Christian colleges, an atmosphere of fear and intolerance prevails. Many such colleges need to rethink their culture and policies regarding homosexuality. The challenge for them is to create a positive atmosphere without compromising the lifestyle expectations of the Christian church. (Contains 20 references.) (SLD)
