Here is a list of publications based on a UCLA-based national study of religious perspectives among college students.
This article is particularly striking for a reader interested in a comparison of religious and spiritual perspectives among college students of various minority religious groups (Muslims, Jews, Unitarian Universalists, Hindus, etc.).
Muslim college students come across as having stronger religious commitments, as well as being uncomfortable with discussing religion in public (the authors note the post-9/11 climate). However, the “new” minorities of the recent past – Jewish students – come across as, to put it simplistically, “less religious.” — This data provides food for thought on the issue of American patterns of cultural assimilation.
Sadly, data collected since 1966 shows how students have moved towards materialism and away from spiritual-philosophical concerns (this article).
