Religious and Spirituality Diversity at a Multi-Campus Suburban University: What Type of Need for Chaplaincy?
Possamai, Adam; Brackenreg, Ellen
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v31 n4 p355-366 Nov 2009
This article explores people's use of and need for religious and/or spiritual facilities, based on the findings from a survey sent to students and staff of a multi-campus suburban university. The results indicate that, in this context, people use facilities more for practising their faith/spirituality by themselves rather than to meet with others of similar beliefs. It also shows that a multi-faith pragmatic approach to religious diversity seems to match with student and staff needs. (Contains 10 tables.)
