This text provides a long overdue alternative to current literatures about the religious and spiritual lives of college students with their over reliance on Christian frameworks for faith development. Through research based illustrations, the volume calls on higher education professionals and academics in the United States to more effectively and completely consider a multi-faith frame to view the impact of faith diversity on college campuses. It considers the marginalizing impact of unexamined religious privileging and provides an alternate way of understanding faith and spirituality, with the potential to influence both research and practice in higher education, in the United States and other countries, as well as the lives of religious minority college students.
In their own words, college students explain why faith diversity must be one element of treating all students in a just manner, one that honors their individual needs as learners and community members. The volume is an invitation to those educators who have not yet considered this situation to begin conversing on the topic with those who are already convinced of the need.

About the Author:

Jenny L. Small is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan, receiving a Ph.D. from the Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education. Her research has focused on the spiritual lives and faith identities of religiously diverse college students, how college students use language to define these elements of their identities, and how religiously diverse students interact. She serves on the directorate of the ACPA Commission for Spirituality, Faith, Religion and Meaning.   Dr. Small's book, entitled Understanding College Students' Spiritual Identities: Different Faiths, Varied Worldviews, is now available from Hampton Press. Her work has also appeared in Research in Higher Education, About Campus, Religion & Education, and Multicultural Perspectives, and is forthcoming in the Journal of College Student Development. She is a recipient of a research grant from the Spirituality in Higher Education Project at UCLA, for a project entitled "Spirituality and Well-Being among Religiously Privileged and Religiously Marginalized College Students." Finally, Dr. Small's chapter "Engaging Religious and Faith Diversity in Multicultural Student Services" is available in the book Multicultural Student Services on Campus: Building Bridges, Re-visioning Community (An ACPA Publication). Dr. Small's most recent book is based on her dissertation research at the University of Michigan.

Review:

"Small successfully enlightens readers on several issues: the importance of attending to the religious and spiritual dimensions of students' lives, the challenges and possibilities inherent in student dialogue ..., and the harmful effects of religious marginalization and privilege."-Alyssa Bryant, North Carolina State University
