Fereira, James A.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Minnesota
Religion has been connected to higher education throughout its history in the United States and recent research suggests that the development of spirituality, as a part of the pursuit of higher education, is important to today's college student. In an effort to understand twenty-first century college students' perspectives on spirituality in relation to their education, this study examines the relationship between student pre-college characteristics and the spiritual engagement of students entering institutions affiliated with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. Findings of this research suggest that students' gender, race or ethnicity, high-school academic achievement, high-school type, and religious identification are informative in understanding their spiritual engagement as they enter colleges and universities affiliated with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. These findings may be useful to researchers and practitioners as they design ways to encourage students in their unique journeys toward spiritual maturity during their college years.
