To find out the role religion plays on American college campuses today, Missouri State University’s Dr. John Schmalzbauer and his team of co-researchers are exploring the landscape of campus ministries across the country.
A three-year grant of more than $981,000 from Lilly Endowment Inc. has made this project possible.
Despite COVID challenges, research work has begun and will continue until fall 2022. This project builds on the 2004-2008 National Study of Campus Ministries Schmalzbauer was involved with previously.
Schmalzbauer, a religious studies professor, shares more about the study and its purpose.
