The Campus Spiritual Climate: Predictors of Satisfaction among Students with Diverse Worldviews
Rockenbach, Alyssa Bryant; Mayhew, Matthew J.
Journal of College Student Development, v55 n1 p41-62 Jan 2014
Using data collected via the Campus Religious and Spiritual Climate Survey (CRSCS), we examined how dimensions of the campus spiritual climate shape student satisfaction. The findings reveal that structural worldview diversity, space for support and spiritual expression, and provocative experiences with worldview diversity positively relate to satisfaction, while perceptions of a divisive psychological climate undermine satisfaction. There is no compelling evidence to suggest that the relationship between campus climate dimensions and student satisfaction is conditional on religion or worldview.
