A Study of Black Student's Social and Academic Life at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse: A Study of Black Attitudes
This paper was intended to determine whether or not the problems of discrimination and lack of social activities are perceived by Black students on the WSU-La Crosse campus. The findings in this study were supoorted by related studies, as well as by writings of various Black educators and students. The subjects for the study were the 44 Black students on La Crosse campus during the 1971 Spring Semester. A questionnaire was used to obtain the data. It contained forced choice, multiple choice, and open-ended questions. The thirty-nine questions were designed to acquire data on personal background and on social and academic lives of Blacks at this university. After the data were gathered, the responses were tabulated, and percentages of students responding to each alternative on the questionnaire were computed. The results of the study indicate that discrimination is perceived by Blacks and that their social activities are also somewhat impaired. The results, however, are tenuous because of the small number who responded to the questionnaire.
