Nash and Bradley offer an empirically‐based typology of student spirituality that includes orthodox believers, mainline believers, existential humanists, scientific empiricists, and skeptics. They assume that student spirituality is intertwined with student learning. Consequently, faculty must take student spiritualities into account in order to facilitate constructive and appropriate classroom dialogue.

Keywords:   dialogue, existential humanists, mainline believers, orthodox believers, scientific empiricists, skeptics, spirituality
