News from Institutional Research
From time to time, this bulletin has focused on the interaction among ethnic minority students, their majority peers and faculty. The conclusions have generally reflected a view that Creighton undergraduate majority students have not had much exposure to non-majority students and, while affable, do not go out of their way to learn more about them. However, as educators, we know that interaction among different cultural backgrounds is one method of helping these undergraduates understand how they will grow and develop from learning about those different from themselves. This issue of “News from Institutional Research” looks at the results of the 2007 College Student Survey completed by 490 undergraduate seniors in late April/early May and reports on the undergraduate experiences that were more likely to result in interaction between majority and non-majority students.
