This article presents results of a racial/ethnic climate study conducted at Georgia State University (GSU). The study was designed to assess undergraduate student perceptions of the university's racial/ethnic climate. This included assessing student's overall level of satisfaction, satisfaction with GSU services and facilities, experiences with discrimination, and racial tension. Both quantitative and qualitative measures were employed. Implications for fostering more positive campus cultural climates and conducting similar surveys are presented.
