An evaluation of the Minority Cultural Center program at the University of Wisconsin -- La Crosse
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the Minority Cultural Center programming at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. The investigation was directed toward minority students enrolled in the spring semester of the 1973-74 academic year. The minority population sampled consisted of 68 Ss (46 blacks, 14 native Americans, and 8 latinos). A total of 31 Ss (46 percent) responded to the questionnaire. The 31 Ss consisted of 21 blacks, 5 native Americans, 3 latinos and 2 others. Results of the survey revealed that there were no significant differences between under-classmen and upper-classmen evaluations when considering the criteria of personal adjustment, self-identity, and academic growth. The results show that because of the lack of participation on the part of native Americans and latinos, black students evaluated the program more positively. Black students as well as all other minority students participating in this survey feel that the Minority Cultural Centers should be utilized to meet the needs of all minority students.
