One common trait that is often found in successful people is a well-developed and mature spiritual life. This most often comes through a religious practice of some sort, but it can be found in very secular lifestyles as well. I feel like this is known and understood by my friends and colleagues; however, most of them seem to recoil at the idea of discussing spirituality in public institutions. It seems to me we should promote spiritual development if we want students to become well-rounded and successful human beings. I am not talking about endorsing any particular expression of spirituality here–no official religion. But I am talking about the idea of making spiritual develop something we actively weave into our institutional goals, classroom instruction, campus activities, and general college life. Any thoughts?
