Abstract

Miville and Sedlacek assessed campus social climate-attitudes about diversity, social issues, and different cultures-during summer orientation at a large, public, eastern university. Student cohorts from 1975 and 1990 were compared. The authors discuss a trend toward political conservatism that was exhibited in the results.
