Fostering an Integrated Life of Purpose in Christian Higher Education
Schutte, Kelli Jo
Christian Higher Education, v7 n5 p414-433 Nov 2008
The research reported in this study focused on women in an institution of Christian higher education. The study utilized in-depth interviews to explore certain work/life influences including cultural demands, organizational demands, and personal influences. The findings stress the importance of an individual worldview in strategy formation for work/life negotiations. Given that the study was done in a distinctively Christian environment, the worldview development and expression was somewhat isolated and more accessible for exploration. This study reveals the need for a greater understanding of the individual and the organization when designing and implementing work/life policies.
