- Publisher's Summary
- If institutions are to create campus environments that providewelcoming and engaging contexts for personal and professionaldevelopment of students, faculty, administrators, and staff, allmembers of campus communities must be willing to look closely notjust at what they do (or do not do) on a daily basis, but also why.This book offers an analysis of how faculty perceive intersectionsbetween spirituality and higher education, and what implicationstheir spiritual inclinations have, not only for undergraduateeducation, but also for faculty life within academic workplaces. The Quest for Meaning and Wholeness draws on the 2012Faculty Beliefs and Values Survey of just over 8,500 facultyemployed at a range of institutions, and features faculty voices toanswer the So what? question about whyadministration, faculty developers, and researchers should careabout the spiritual and religious lives of faculty.
