(p.117) 8 The Religious and Spiritual Journeys of College Students
The American University in a Postsecular Age

Larry A. Braskamp

Oxford University Press

After surveying the literature related to college students' religious expectations and experiences, Braskamp concludes that a majority of students want to explore questions of faith and meaning. His portrait of college spirituality is complex, including the acknowledgement that three different subgroups (described as millennials, postmoderns, and the missionary generation) exist side by side on campus. Braskamp argues that a full picture of religion on campus has to include attention to the culture and community of the institution as well as to the curriculum and co‐curriculum.
