The Role of Campus Ministry at State-Supported Universities: A Judgment Analysis.
Whittington, Barbara; And Others
The judgmental policies of campus ministry held by campus ministers at state-supported universities were studied. The campus ministers were grouped according to the campus minister's ministry group, years of personal campus ministry experience, size of student body, campus minister's position at the school, and the campus minister's age by decade of birth. The research was designed to provide both clergy and laity with a clearer understanding of the role of campus ministry at state-supported universities. The research questionnaire was developed using the critical incident technique. Supervisors of campus ministry were asked to list the three most important ministry goals or role functions of campus ministry at state institutions. The responses were tabulated and a 17-item questionnaire was formed. In order to determine reliability, a pilot test of the questionnaire was conducted. The 276 participating campus ministers represented 10 ministry group affiliations during 1982. They rated 17 goals of campus ministry and rated a program of campus ministry that would have the 17 goals as principle objectives. The judgment analysis technique was used and the campus ministers were found to be clustered in six judgmental areas related to ministry group. Evidence indicates that Southern Baptists, Catholics, and Methodists dominate the campus ministry movement. (Author/SW)
