The purpose of the current examination was to develop a scale to measure campus environments and their impact on the experiences and outcomes of diverse student populations. The Culturally Engaging Campus Environments (CECE) Scale was designed to measure the nine elements of college environments that foster success among diverse populations. Authors utilize a variety of techniques to examine the content and construct validity of the CECE Scale using a sample of 499 undergraduates across three institutions. Results indicate that the CECE Scale exhibits a high level of content and construct validity and could be a useful tool for measuring campus environments and their impact on student experiences and outcomes. Implications for future research and practice are discussed.
