The purpose of this study was to identify problems visible minority students were encountering on the University of Windsor campus, and in the community at large. It was argued that the classification of the student (visa or non-visa) would have an impact on whether they encountered unpleasant racial experiences. It was also argued that more racial incidents would occur off campus than on campus. Descriptive statistics revealed that some problems were present on campus and that visible minority students did not have much knowledge about available services on campus. It appears that there has been a lack of communication from the university to visible minority students regarding services. It was recommended that university officials distribute information and have more advertisements available regarding services. It was further recommended that future studies increase their sample size so a more representative group of visible minority students could participate in the study. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
