Abstract:The purpose of this research is to analyze the different reasons for segregation on campus. This varies from the historical institutionalized segregation that has happened at the University of Illinois as well as students choosing to segregate on campus. There will be an analysis on the ways in which institutional segregation and self segregation intertwine and the reason why this occurs.
