To assist students and parents, the John Templeton Foundation categorized college and university programs that support students in pursuing civic and ethical activities. The guide furnishes a thorough list of 405 programs categorized into 10 sections, such as first-year programs and character and sexuality programs. Also listed are 100 colleges and universities and 50 presidents that strive to encourage students to tackle and study social problems. A black-and-white photograph complements each school profile. A glossary aids in clarifying ambiguous terms, such as value, critical thinking and virtue. The Institute on College Student Values selected the colleges and universities. This is a solid pick for libraries that don’t have a similar or updated resource.
