Fraternities and Sororities Shaping the Campus Climate of Personal and Social Responsibility
Barnhardt, Cassie L.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v51 n2 p128-142 May 2014
Data from 9,760 college students on 20 campuses were used to explore the extent to which fraternity and sorority organizations assert an influence over the manner in which students experience the climate for personal and social responsibility while in college. Results demonstrated greater exposure to fraternities and sororities can function to both enhance and detract from the ways in which students experience a climate that reinforces the ideal of contributing to a larger community.
