Abstract:Despite a legislative goal of providing minority students with access to quality postsecondary education, much has yet to be actualized. This is especially true among Black students attending predominantly white universities where the phenomenon of alienation is prevalent. While many universities implement programs to diversify enrollment, some still contend issues of maintaining the population. Such institutions where Black students are severely underrepresented require access to psychological and socio-cultural dimensions of campus climate. Through interviews, questionnaires, and review of existing data, this study aims to assess the psychological nature of alienation and academic satisfaction among Black students at predominantly white institutions.
