Validating a Proposed Model of African-American Students' Social Adjustment.
Schwitzer, Alan M.; Ancis, Julie R.; Griffin, Oris T.
Journal of the First-Year Experience & Students in Transition, v11 n1 p77-102 1999
A study examined four features of African-American college students' social adjustment to predominantly White campuses: sense of underrepresentedness; direct perceptions of racism; hurdle of approaching faculty; and effects of faculty familiarity. The model described African-Americans' experiences in adjusting to institutional climate and relating to faculty but did not describe similar social-adjustment perceptions of White students.
