Shek, Yen Ling; McEwen, Marylu K.
Journal of College Student Development, v53 n5 p703-718 Sep-Oct 2012
This study was conducted using a sample of Asian American male college students (N = 173) from one east coast public, research institution and one west coast public, research institution to explore the relationships of racial identity and gender role conflict with self-esteem. The study employed the People of Color Racial Identity Attitudes Scale, Gender Role Conflict Scale, and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale. Regression analysis revealed that 36.8% (p less than 0.001) of the total variance in self-esteem was accounted for by demographic variables, racial identity, and gender role conflict. Implications for college and university campuses are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
