Responsive and Responsible: Faculty Encouragement of Civic Engagement
Cole, Eddie R.; Howe, Elijah C.; Laird, Thomas F. Nelson
Journal of College and Character, v17 n1 p8-22 2016
This study explores how often faculty members encourage students to engage with campus, local, state, national, and global issues. Using data from the 2013 administration of the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE), the results show that faculty members are more likely to encourage students to engage in state, national, or global issues than campus or local issues. Differences in faculty encouragement of civic engagement are also presented across gender, racial/ethnic identification, rank and employment status, and institutional affiliation, among other characteristics. Implications for practice are provided.
