Sense of Community, Inclusion, and Religious Pluralism: A Comparison of Two Catholic Universities
Ferrari, Joseph R.; Bottom, Todd L.; Matteo, Elizabeth
Religious Education, v109 n2 p112-125 2014
For decades researchers assessed sense of community (SOC), inclusion, and pluralism within academic settings. In the present study, 2,220 undergraduate students (1,442 women, 778 men; M age = 23.42 years; SD = 7.84) at two Catholic universities responded to perceived levels of school sense of community, inclusion, and religious pluralism. Analyses of covariance assessing participants' university setting, religious affiliation, and racial identification showed no significant interaction or main effects for setting and racial identity with regard to inclusion. However, a significant interaction for university setting and religious affiliation for sense of community was found. Limitations and future directions are discussed.
