Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using a sample of 119 Hmong students, this study employed multiple linear regression analysis to examine the role of ethnic identity, principled policy beliefs, self-interest, and gender in Hmong college students’ support for college affirmative action policies designed to benefit their own group. Results indicated principled policy beliefs as well as gender were significant predictors of support. Ethnic identity and self-interest were not significant predictors of support. Implications for research and practice are addressed.
