Accommodating the Spiritual and Cultural Practices of Native American College and University Students
Minthorn, Robin Starr
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v41 n1 p154-163 2014
There is an increasingly diversified student body within higher education institutions. The existence of such diversity requires higher education personnel to have a better understanding of the spiritual and cultural practices of various student populations. This article will address some of the unique practices within the Native American student population, as demonstrated in part by the description of a campus incident that ignited a change in housing practices at one university. The information in this article will assist residence life professionals in knowing how to better accommodate the spiritual and cultural practices of Native American students in on-campus residential settings.
