  17. Summary • UK students are less likely than students from other doctoral institutions to converse with students who are very different from themselves (NSSE) • UK students perceive the university as not emphasizing the importance of contact with students from different economic, social, and racial or ethnic backgrounds (NSSE) • Female and African American alumni perceive the social climate at UK as less supportive than the overall sample of alumni (UK Alumni Survey)

  18. Summary • African American students are more likely to express concern with UK’s commitment to racial harmony on campus (Noel-Levitz Inventory) • African American freshmen are more likely to report working and conversing with whites than vice versa (New Freshman Survey) • Both African Americans and women are less likely than the overall group of respondents to believe the campus is safe and secure.
