Dynamics of Race and Prosocial Involvement Experiences in Developing an Ecumenical Worldview
Gehrke, Sean
Journal of College Student Development, v55 n7 p675-692 Oct 2014
In this study the differences in ecumenical worldview development are examined by race for 3,300 college students from 135 institutions. Results indicate that all students exhibited significant growth through college in ecumenical worldview, and students of color (Black, Asian, and Latino students) exhibited significantly higher levels of ecumenical worldview than White students. Prosocial involvement experiences that significantly predicted ecumenical worldview for at least 2 groups in the study were leadership training, activism, and political campaigning. These findings point to the importance of prosocial cocurricular experiences in contributing to ecumenical worldview development.
