Professors on Student Spirituality

Over 40,000 faculty members from more than 420 colleges responded to a survey from the Higher Education Reserach Institute about their attitudes, beliefs and behaviors regarding student spirituality. More than half of the faculty members indicated that it is important to enhance undergraduates' self-understanding and to develop their moral character and values, but only 30 percent think colleges should concern themselves with students' spiritual development. The study can be found here.

I will write more about the study's findings soon.
