Abstract
The purpose of this research is to examine racial microaggressions occurring on a college campus. Findings in this study wish to further enhance the capabilities of colleges and universities to assist racial minority groups on campus, thus hopefully bettering retention rates in the institution. The hypothesis is that racial minority students will see more racial microaggressions than white majority students on campus. The study recruited full-time students of Carroll College students who were recruited through promotion throughout campus. Racial and Ethnic Minority Scale (REMS) was used in the determination of students' experiences with racial microaggression with subscales of Assumptions of Inferiority, Assumption of Criminality, Microinvalidations, Assumptions of Similarity, Environmental Microaggressions, Workplace and School Microaggressions. The questionnaire included the 45 item questions used in the REMS as well as questions within the questionnaire to identify the validity of respondents and took 20-30 minutes to complete. Results of this study have found that Minorities are experiencing microaggressions on campus. Specifically, Latino/a or Hispanic and Asian minorities. Minorities experience greater microaggressions on all components of the REMS except for Assumptions of Criminality. When races were compared between other racial groups through One way ANOVAs, both Latino/a or Hispanic and Native American minorities experienced greater microaggressions when compared to the other racial groups. Results also indicated that the darker the skin tone was correlated with experiencing microaggression on all components.
