Postawy wartościujące studentów polskich i amerykańskich (na przykładzie Katolickiego Uniwersytetu Lubelskiego i Franciszkańskiego Uniwersytetu ze Steubenville - USA)

Antoni Tomkiewicz, Ewa Popławska


The main purpose of this paper is to find an answer to the following question: what valuing attitudes have the students of the two Catholic universities: the Catholic University of Lublin and Steubenville Franciscan University (USA)? Both universities are characterized by their loyalty to the Church. In order to answer the above question empirical research has been carried out among the students of the two universities with the use of two research methods: Allport-Vernon-Lindzey’s Paper of Valuing Attitudes and Milton Rokeach’s Scale of Values. On the basis of empirical research Rokeach came up with a list of ultimate values (as life goals) and instrumental values.

120 persons were subjected under study (60 from the Catholic University of Lublin and 60 from Steubenville Franciscan University). Among the subjects were people from different branches of studies. The findings pointed to the differences in the valuing attitudes among the Polish and American students. The Polish youth think highly of theoretical and economical values, tolerance, ambition, logical thinking, responsibility, mature love, social recognition, life successes, and national security. The American youth have a greater appreciation for political values, obedience, understanding, kindness, courage, and true freedom. It should be noted that both groups under study think most highly of religious values, with the stipulation that the latter values are more appreciated by American than Polish students.
