dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research was to examine faculty perceptions of campus multicultural issues at four public research universities in Texas. This research attempted to answer the following questions: 1. What are the personal characteristics of the faculty members of the Texas public research universities who participated in the study? 2. Was there significant difference in the attitudes toward multicultural programs and awareness of campus multicultural programs by academic rank? 3. Was there significant difference in the attitudes toward multicultural programs and awareness of campus multicultural programs by ethnicity? An instrument developed by Standley (1977), and modified by the researcher, was used to survey 260 faculty members. Data collected then attempted to answer the first research question through the use of descriptive information, such as frequency distribution and mean scores for demographic variables. The two remaining research questions were converted to null hypotheses in order to determine the effect of ethnicity and academic rank, as well as an interactive effect between the two variables, on faculty attitudes toward multicultural issues and faculty members' level of awareness pertaining to campus multicultural programs. The findings of the study indicate that faculty attitudes pertaining to campus multicultural programs did not statistically differ by ethnicity or academic rank.
