Our aim is to look at how retention of Hmong students is negatively affected by racism on campus. Specifically, we will be looking at how Hmong students are more likely to consider leaving the university due to racism and how Hmong students who have experienced race-based incidents are less likely to report the incident due to the expectation that no action will be taken. Our research brings up the importance of diversity and inclusivity. Examining students of colors’ experience on campus not only acknowledges but enables a more critical outlook in ways the University can correct and change. Using the Campus Climate Survey from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire (UWEC), we conducted a research using both quantitative and qualitative data. In order to analyze properly, we used SPSS to crosstab questions and comments. Specifically, we used questions that correlate with retention and bias incidents to further our research. By examining the most recent campus climate survey, we hope it will raise awareness to improve matters with the campus climate. Ultimately, we want to bring a better perspective and knowledge as to why Hmong student’s retention is affected by factors such as the campus climate.
