Mexican American and Anglo Perceptions of a University Environment.
Murray, Wayne R.; Pettibone, Timothy J.
Mexican American and Anglo perceptions of a Southwestern university environment were compared using the College and University Environment Scales. The instrument was used as a psychological test rather than a group consensus instrument. Construct validity was maintained using factor analysis to determine the most meaningful items for the sample of 322 students. Of the original 160 items, 38 were used to compare the groups on 4 environmental dimensions. Factor scores were then used with a 2-way analysis of variance to compare the groups. Sex differences were found on the community and awareness scales and an ethnicity difference was found on the scholarship dimension. A related document is ED 065 208. (Author/PS)
