The religious identity, beliefs, and behavior of college faculty in the United States are complex. Faculty are far more religious than many might believe, but still much less religious than the American public. Their religious beliefs are often intertwined with political ideology. Moreover, faculty are not without their religious prejudices – they are less tolerant of some religious groups than others. This volume provides a detailed profile of faculty religious attitudes and practices, and how they feel about others’ religions as well. It examines the intersection of two of the most important institutions in American life: religion and higher education.
