Abstract

Community has been identified as a defining characteristic of Christian colleges and universities (M. Schwehn, 2000). This study focuses on how community is articulated in the catalogs of 10 Christian institutions with membership in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU). The examination considered how institutions define community, the context in which they define community, and common dimensions of community. The CCCU institutions share several distinct traits in terms of how community is expressed in their catalogs. These commonalties include behavioral expectations for students, the role of interpersonal relationships, and the fusion of intellectual and religious life.
