Comparing success and satisfaction of black and white students attending predominantly white institutions
Previous research on Black and White students who attend predominantly White institutions has suggested that there are several differences between these social groups. The current study compared success and satisfaction of White and Black undergraduate students who attend predominantly White institutions. Racial identity, pressure to conform, confidence and support were also examined as variables that may have an effect on satisfaction or success of college students. Results suggest that there is a difference between White and Black undergraduate students' satisfaction and success. One hundred and forty-seven participants answered a series of questions pertaining to their particular institution. White students reported being more satisfied at predominantly White institutions than Black students. White students also reported being more successful at predominantly White institutions than Black students. Several variables were correlated with success and satisfaction of both Black and White students.
