White Students Enrolled in Black Colleges and Universities: Their Attitudes and Perceptions.
Standley, Nancy V.
Attitudes and perceptions held by white students enrolled in black colleges were studied to determine their educational and personal experiences at the institutions, their feelings about the impact they had on the institutions, and to provide data that could be helpful to the institutions as they move toward becoming multi-cultural. For purposes of data analysis and interpretation, responses are categorized in five groups: observations of respondent data; educational climate and learning experiences; teacher competence; interpersonal relations; and overall satisfaction. All of the participating institutions were located in the South. White students are older than the traditional college age; 60.2 percent are married and 98.6 percent live off campus. The survey questionnaire, a Likert-type scale, investigated perceptions of social activities/atmosphere; physical facilities; employment preparation; student services; and administrative practices, as well as perceptions of the learning and teaching atmosphere. Open-ended items and a comment section were also included. Appendices provide institutional data, respondent information, data on responses to survey items, and selected subjective responses. (SW)
