Abstract

This study explores whether campus sense of community predicts critical consciousness among students. Analysis of a sample of 197 students showed a mixed relationship between campus sense of community and critical consciousness. Students who felt a sense of belonging were more likely to engage in sociopolitical action, whereas those who perceived their own needs as being met by their campus community were less likely to engage in sociopolitical action. This article discusses implications for research, theory, and practice.
