The Role of Religion and Institution Type in Seniors' Perceptions of the Religious and Spiritual Campus Climate
Fosnacht, Kevin; Broderick, Cynthia
Journal of College and Character, v19 n1 p18-31 2018
This study investigated the correlates of two measures that capture students' perception of the religious and spiritual campus climate. It focuses on how the factors, religious identity and attending a religiously affiliated institution, influence students' perception of the respect for their beliefs and comfort in expressing their views on campus. The results indicate few differences by religious identity in students' perception of the respect for their beliefs, but significant differences by religion in their comfort in expressing their views. Additionally, attending a religiously affiliated institution was positively associated with students' comfort in expressing their beliefs.
