Impact of Civil Rights Movement Immersion Experience on UW-Eau Claire Student Participants.
MetadataShow full item record
The Civil Rights Pilgrimage is an evaluation study of the impact of immersion experiences on the development of multicultural competence at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Research was conducted by distributing a survey before the trip to test previous knowledge of the Civil Rights Movement; this survey also included the Modern Racism Scale, testing the participant's level of racist beliefs. When the trip was completed the students were given the exact same survey, with satisfaction questions added. With the variations in participant's responses we, as a research team, were able to evaluate the differences in knowledge of the Civil Rights Movement and the individual's racist attitudes.
