Kurtulmus, Mehmet
International Journal of Higher Education, v5 n1 p141-151 2016
The aim of this research is to examine the effect of diversity climate perception on alienation of students to university. The research was carried out with relational survey model. 333 undergraduate students in Faculty of Education, Medical, and Faculty of Theology of Dicle University constituted the participant group. Research data were collected in Turkey with "diversity climate" and "alienation" scales. Data were analyzed by setting up structural equation modeling. It has been seen that goodness of fit indexes of set model are among the range standard value (?[superscript 2] = 470,233; df = 205; ?[superscript 2]/df = 2,29). In the research, it has been determined that diversity climate perception has affected the alienation of university students negatively and significantly. It was also confirmed that diversity climate perception can be a basis for alienation of students to their university by a significant level. In accordance with these results, it can be concluded that in order to minimize alienation of undergraduates to their university, management bodies of universities can be advised to perform a more tolerant approach to the diversities of their students.
