Morin, Shauna M.; Crandall, Rebecca E.; Rockenbach, Alyssa N.; Mayhew, Matthew J.
Journal of College and Character, v19 n2 p152-159 2018
In the United States, some would argue the recent political climate has been characterized by great division and animosity. The realities individuals are seeing across the United States are also taking root on college and university campuses, which often serve as microcosms of the larger society. In light of the challenges persons face at present vis-a-vis worldview diversity and political strife, this article provides a brief overview of interfaith research from 2009 to the present in order to contextualize latest findings, discusses elements of today's campus climate for worldview diversity that may also be exacerbating rifts between students with different political perspectives, and proposes ways to consider findings about interfaith engagement with an eye toward improving understanding and cooperation across political lines in particular.
