Mayhew, Matthew J.; Engberg, Mark E.
Journal of Higher Education, v81 n4 p459-488 Jul-Aug 2010
How do interactions with diverse peers affect moral reasoning development? Results from a longitudinal study of 171 students enrolled in an Intergroup Dialogue or Introduction to Sociology course indicate that students who experience more negative interactions with diverse peers report lower developmental gains in moral reasoning, although the effects are differentially manifested within each of the courses. (Contains 5 tables and 1 note.)
