The Interfaith Diversity Experiences & Attitudes Longitudinal Survey (IDEALS) seeks to better understand student encounters with religious and spiritual diversity across the spectrum of American higher education. As colleges and universities increasingly seek to engage religiously diverse students, actionable data and empirically-driven decision making is more important than ever before.
Participation in IDEALS helps ensure that institutions have the knowledge base necessary to set a meaningful agenda toward this important aspect of diversity. Findings will be used by institutions and practitioners alike, helping campuses to understand what key indicators to track, identify the interfaith initiatives that are the most effective, and pinpoint high impact practices for further exploration.
