The Conditional Effects of Interracial Interactions on College Student Outcomes
Bowman, Nicholas A.
Journal of College Student Development, v54 n3 p322-328 May-Jun 2013
Given the increasing racial diversity among American college students and society, it is critical to promote meaningful interracial interactions during college. Although a burgeoning literature demonstrates the link between interracial interactions and an array of student outcomes, some important issues have been largely overlooked. Most research on interracial interactions does not examine how these effects might vary depending on the groups involved in the interaction. The outcomes for interracial interactions may differ not only between minority and majority students, but also for racial minorities interacting with Whites versus with other people of color. This study explores whether the link between interracial interactions and college outcomes depends upon students' race and the race of students with whom they interact. (Contains 2 tables.)
