Understanding Campus Climate through the Voices of Filipina/o American College Students
Maramba, Dina C.
College Student Journal, v42 n4 p1045-1060 Dec 2008
The purpose of this article is to discuss findings that investigate the experiences of Filipina/o American college students at a large, research I institution in southern California. Qualitative data were collected through one-on-one interviews to elicit responses related to the campus environment, sense of campus community/sense of belonging, and feelings associated with being a Filipina/o student in a predominantly White institution. The findings indicate a challenging campus environment on both academic and social levels for these students. Results also suggest the importance of institutions playing an active role in facilitating a conducive learning environment while being intentional in addressing issues of equity and diversity for Filipina/o American college students.
