Title:Diversity on Campus: Segregation between National and East Asian International Undergraduate students
Author(s):Tobillo, Julian
Subject(s):Diversity; Segregation; Undergraduate; Asian; International students; Domestic students
Abstract:My findings of my research included the discovery of the cultural/language barrier between domestic and international students, and how that barrier can be very strong to very weak, depending on the individual person. I also found out that making assumptions of people of one culture based on data you got on people of another culture, and using these assumptions to create an ethnographic method, test is a way to fail. If I were to continue this research I would definitely use surveys and other methods of gathering anonymous data. I feel that just interviewing people would not be the best way to approach this project because I am just one person and interviewing takes time and isn't as efficient at gathering data as say a survey is.
