Religious Faith and the Development of Character on Campus.
Willimon, William H.
Educational Record, v78 n3-4 p73-79 Sum-Fall 1997
If higher education is to contribute to society's betterment, it must aim to produce people of character. This requires basic principles of liberal arts education including time, an appropriate setting, opportunity for observation, and conversation. Religious faith also makes a contribution. Although many colleges and universities attempt to create values-free secular space, nonbelief has itself become a form of dogma. (MSE)
