Billings, Meredith S.; Terkla, Dawn Geronimo
Journal of General Education, v60 n2 p84-100 2011
This study assesses whether Tufts University's campus culture was successful at infusing civic-mindedness in all undergraduates. A structural equation model was developed, and findings revealed that the campus environment had a significant positive impact on civic values and beliefs and a positive indirect effect on civic engagement activities.
