Issues 5 and 6 of “News from Institutional Research” focused on the spiritual life of the 2004 Creighton freshmen. This issue and the one that will follow later this month report results from the HERI Faculty survey completed by one hundred fifty Creighton undergraduate faculty in the 2004-2005 academic year. That survey of attitudes, beliefs and behaviors provide a basis for looking at how faculty perceive the relationship between spirituality and higher education and how they view the role of spirituality and religion in their own lives. Faculty in the School of Nursing (N=23) and the College of Business (N=16) are their own groupings. Faculty in Communication Studies, Education, Exercise Science, Journalism and Social Work (N=18) comprise the “Professional” grouping. Faculty in the Biological and Physical Sciences as well as Math and Computer Science (N=31) are included in the “Science” grouping. “Social Science” (N=22) includes faculty in History, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology. All the remaining faculty (N=40) are included in “Humanities”.
