Student Social Climate Survey, Fall 2010
Self-reported racial/ethnic groups, from a set of survey itemsSelf-reported survey data about race/ethnicity of the survey respondents are also available. The survey included a new, now-standard pair of items, in which respondents were first asked to indicate if they were of Hispanic origin, and then asked to check one or more of five options describing their race. They could also provide a written comment to further clarify their racial/ethnic group description. The table of responses for this survey item shows results for self-reported racial categories, crossed with Hispanic origin (ethnicity), including information on those who provided a comment on their race-ethnicity. Results are presented for graduate and undergraduate students and for all respondents combined. Some findings from students' responses presented in the above table are discussed below.
Since the CU Application for Admissions had previously collected race/ethnicity data in the old, one-dimensional question format up until the time of the 2010 Student Social Climate Survey, we were also able to compare survey respondents' student records data from the application with their answers to the multi-dimensional race/ethnicity survey item. In order to make this comparison, we also included responses from the additional survey item that asked students to note if they were a U.S. citizen or not. (It was necessary to include responses from this item in order to fully make comparisons between the two sets of data, because the category of "international" was previously included as one of the possible race/ethnic groups on the CU application.)
