Description

This study examined ethnic identity attitudes and social connectedness, and how these variables influenced perceptions of campus climate for college students of color attending a predominantly White institution. Results of the analyses support the usefulness of ethnic identity cluster profiles in better understanding how individuals within a broad social demographic group (e.g., students of color) experience campus climate differently. We are challenged not to make sweeping assumptions about groups, and instead consider cultural complexity.
