Experiences of Differential Treatment Among College Students of Color

Caucasian and non-Caucasian students completed surveys containing vignettes of situations of differential treatment.

Results indicated that African Americans experienced more incidents of differential treatment in peer-faculty situations and that females rated higher both the degree of offensiveness and the degree of discrimination manifested.
