ABSTRACT

The goal of the present study was to examine the relationship of social justice beliefs, gender, religiousness, and ethnicity on environmental attitudes among college students at a private university. Participants in the current research with higher scores on social justice measures also had higher scores on three environmental measures: attitudes toward the environment, conscientiousness about the environment and involvement in environment issues. Gender, race/ethnicity, and college major were not found to be statistically significant. Future research should examine the role of social justice beliefs on environmental attitudes in more general populations of college students.
