The aim of this study is to cultivate modern college students’ ecological consciousness under the background of current deteriorating ecological crisis. The study shows some college students do not realize the harm of the ecological crisis and are not fully aware that it is each person’s duties and responsibilities to relieve even solve the ecological crisis either. The study also conveys most students have realized the importance of ecological consciousness in solving the current ecological crisis. They also would like to gain ecological consciousness and accept the three ways discussed in the part of discussion of cultivating their ecological consciousness. Because college students are the precious source of the world and thus colleges have the special mission of guiding the social trend, developing the social culture and making contributions to spiritual construction, it is absolutely urgent and necessary for colleges to make any effort to cultivate college students’ ecological consciousness.
According to previous literature, levels of
religiousness decrease among emerging adults, but similar research has not been
done regarding levels of spirituality. The current study examined the responses
of college students to measures of religiousness and spirituality. The
participants in the study were from a private, religiously affiliated
university in the Midwest, between ages 18 and 24. Participants completed the
Personal Religious Inventory (PRI), the Duke Religion Index (DUREL), the
Spiritual Transcendence Scale (STS), the Daily Spiritual Experiences Scale
(DSES) and the Spiritual Involvement and Beliefs Scale (SIBS). Significant
differences were found between first-year and upper-class participants on religious
attendance, non-religious attendance, and the Daily Spiritual Experiences
Scale. Based on these results, it is suggested that multi-dimensional measures
provide a more accurate view of religiousness than one-dimensional measures.
