2006 Institute Proceedings

Jon C. Dalton Institute logoWe are pleased to provide the proceedings of the 2006 Institute on College Student Values on the topic of Finding Wholeness: Students’ Search for Meaning and Purpose in College in this month’s issue of the Journal of College and Character. For the past 16 years the proceedings of the annual Institute at Florida State University have been published to provide a record and a resource for scholars and educators interested in the moral and civic development of students in the higher education setting. For the first seven years (l991-l997) the ICSV proceedings were published in print form and since l997 the proceedings have been made available in an electronic format.

We include in this year’s proceedings many of the 2006 Institute’s major presentations and concurrent session papers. Not all of the Institute presentations are included in the proceedings since not all authors submitted papers suitable for publication. Articles accepted for this year’s proceedings were edited and formatted by co-editor Pam Crosby, and published as .pdf documents in order to achieve a more uniform and usable publication style. We think that readers will find the 2006 Institute Proceedings to be rich in content and attractive in presentation.
