A Cross-Cultural Program for Attitude Modification of White Students on a Predominantly Black University Campus; A Research Monograph.
Mohr, Paul B., Sr.
This study sought to assess the effectiveness of the Carnegie Cross-Cultural Experience Program. The program brought white students from the University of Florida to study at the predominantly black Florida A & M University. The program came about because it was felt that as an increasing number of black people enter professional fields or are served by professional people, white professionals have become aware of the need to "sensitize" themselves to modern black culture. Pre- and post-program questionnaires were administered. A follow-up test administered three months after the close of the program included the following: (a) FAMU Compus Opinionnaire, (b) process analysis, and (c) student evaluation. (These are all included in the Appendix.) The tests indicated that the program was highly effective in preparing white students for understanding and working sensitively and responsibly with blacks.
