Interracial Contact Experience and Attrition among Black Undergraduates at a Predominantly White University.
Bennett, Christine
Theory and Research in Social Education, v12 n2 p19-47 Sum 1984
Black students who had positive interracial contact prior to college experienced more positive interracial contact on campus, had stronger feelings of being prepared for higher education, and expressed less trauma and more satisfaction with their decision to attend college. These findings support K-12 school integration policies recommended by social contact theorists. (RM)
