Faculty Fellowships for Mission Presentation: “Assessing Mission Growth in Gonzaga Students” Friday, November 9th, 3pm, Wolff Auditorium in Jepson
Join faculty, staff, and students for a presentation and conversation led by our Spring 2018 Faculty Fellows for Mission. Peggy Sue Loroz and Vivek Patil, Professors of Marketing, will present the results of research funded by the Faculty Fellowships for Mission initiative. A survey of incoming and graduating students assessed students’ orientation toward the mission dimensions of Magis; Cura Personalis; Diversity; Discernment; Ethics and Professional Responsibility; Community Action/Service; Social Justice; Finding God in All Things; Faith, Spirituality, and Religiosity; and Ego-comparative Identity. Mean comparisons between the two cohorts explored mission-related development over the course of the undergraduate experience. Additional analysis examined the roles of gender, high school type, major school of study, academic performance, and participation in curricular and co-curricular offerings such as retreats, service learning and volunteering.
