The problem of this dissertation is to investigate the critical factors in why men leave the campus ministry. Those entering have not been making it a life-long ministry. Many leave it before they are forty years old to take a parish church or a teaching position. The method chosen was a questionnaire study on those men who left the campus ministry. The subjects included: 1. full-time campus ministers 2. male 3. ordained 4. who served during at least five calendar years 5. who left the profession between 1950 and 1962 6. and who belong to the denominations or agency included in the National Student Christian Federation.
