Revisiting the Assessment Context: A Call to Interfaith Assessment
Snipes, Jeremy T.; Correia-Harker, Benjamin
Journal of College and Character, v18 n2 p130-135 2017
Nearly a decade ago, Alyssa Rockenbach, the editor of the "Journal of College & Character's" "Spirituality on Campus" section, issued a call to action. First, she invited scholars to better assess campus spiritual and religious climate. Then, she urged practitioners to redouble their efforts to share and promote best practices related to religious and spiritual life on campus. Since the initial call in 2008, the field of higher education and student affairs has made several advances in religion, spirituality, and interfaith engagement on college and university campuses. This article highlights three critical advancements: the UCLA Spirituality in Higher Education study, the development of professional competencies, and the rise of interfaith cooperation. The article ends with a call for campus educators to participate in the assessment of interfaith work on campus.
