      In this study we investigated gender role attitudes, religion, and spirituality as predictors of beliefs about violence against women in a sample of 316 White college students. Results indicated that gender role attitudes were the best overall predictor of domestic violence beliefs. Spirituality also contributed to the models for men and women.

    • Student service -- United States -- Psychological aspects.
    • College students -- United States -- Psychology.
    • Identity (Psychology) -- United States.
    • Interpersonal relations -- United States.
    • Education, Higher -- Aims and objectives -- United States.
    Abstract:
      This constructivist study explored service-learning as a contextual influence on identity development and self-authorship. Analysis of data from interviews with 8 participants, each of whom completed an undergraduate service-learning course 2 to 4 years prior to the study, suggested that an enduring influence of service-learning was construction of a more integrated identity evidenced by complexity in thinking about self and relationships with others, an openness to new ideas and experiences, and shifts in future commitments.

    Subject Headings:
    • Social skills -- Canada -- Cross-cultural studies.
    • Students, Foreign -- Canada -- Psychology.
    • Culture shock -- Canada.
    • Universities and colleges -- Canada -- Graduate work.
    Abstract:
      This study expanded and tested Furnham and Bochner's (1982) model of culture shock, employing a sample of 156 male international students in a Canadian university. Path analysis was used to assess the effects of cultural differences, size of co-national group, family status, cross-cultural experience, and social interaction with hosts on culture shock. Results suggested that social interaction with hosts plays an important role in international students' adjustment.

  • Understanding Gay Identity Development Within the College Environment
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Gays -- United States -- Identity.
    • College environment -- United States.
    Abstract:
      Using grounded theory methodology, the experiences of 11 self-identified gay male college studentswere explored to understand how the environment contributed to the exploration and development of a gay identity. One central category (finding empowerment) and 5 integrative categories (self-acceptance, disclosure to others, environmental influences, individual factors, and exploring multiple identities) emerged from the research. Findings suggested that one's sexual identity is complexly integrated and often at odds with other aspects of the individual's identity.

    Subject Headings:
    • College student personnel administrators -- Training of -- United States.
    • Q technique -- United States.
    • Competency based education -- United States.
    Abstract:
      Although Q methodology has been especially well used by researchers in a variety of social and behavioral sciences, student affairs researchers have not been inclined to deploy this methodology. This article examines Q methodology and uses a case study to explore the potential for student affairs assessment and research. Overall, the authors conclude that Q methodology is a viable research tool for student affairs practitioners to optimize their responsiveness to a multitude of practical challenges faced in their daily work.
