Race and Gender Differences in Pledging Attitudes.
Cokley, Kevin; Wright, Doris
Attitudes toward pledging among college students were examined to determine if attitudes differed according to race or gender. Participants were surveyed at two locations including attendees from a Greek national convention and students enrolled at a large urban college campus. Results showed a significant main effect for race and gender but failed to find an interaction effect. Participants differed in their perceptions of the process known as pledging. These findings suggest the importance of helping educate college organizations about their roles and responsibilities for pledging. The way in which that education about pledging occurs may take different forms given cultural and gender differences in perceptions about the pledging process. Also summarizes previous research concerning Greek affiliation. Appendices include sample items from the Survey of Attitudes About Pledging Survey and definitions of key terms. (Author/MKA)
