Factors Influencing the Ally Development of College Students
Munin, Art; Speight, Suzette L.
Equity & Excellence in Education, v43 n2 p249-264 2010
Allies represent a crucial faction in the work for social justice; as members of the dominant population who advocate for the oppressed, they are important collaborators in this struggle. This qualitative inquiry investigated the ally development of 13 college students at a religiously affiliated institution in a Midwestern urban area. The interviews yielded several common factors, including personality qualities, family influence, faith, and realizations of Otherness. Implications for fostering the development of allies are discussed along with suggestions for future research. (Contains 1 table.)
