Swank, Eric; Asada, Hideko; Lott, John
Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work, v10 n2 p85-103 2002
A study examined multicultural attitudes of social work students. Surveys of 437 undergraduates at a rural Kentucky university indicated that student acceptance of multiculturalism was influenced by gender and their own stances on White privilege and institutional racism. However, students became more positive toward multicultural education after they had initiated interracial exchanges and completed a social diversity class. (Contains 61 references.) (Author/TD)
