pp. 249-281 | 10.1353/jhe.2007.0015


Using a longitudinal sample of 7,063 students, this study examined through multilevel regression analyses the impact of interracial interactions on student-faculty relationships and intellectual self-concept. Interracial interactions were positively related to each type of student-faculty interaction, while student-faculty interactions were significant to students' self-perception of academic ability and intellectual self-confidence.
