Abstract

The Multicultural Experiences Questionnaire (MEQ) is a validated and easy-to-administer tool for assessing individuals’ multicultural competencies (Narvaez & Hill, 2010). The current study examined the utility of the MEQ for assessing the impact of undergraduate diversity courses. A total of 137 students in six university-designated diversity courses participated in this study. The survey was administered in the first and the final week of the semester. Results of a mixed design ANOVA analysis showed students scored significantly higher on the survey at posttest. The MEQ is a valuable tool for higher education institutions interested in assessing the effectiveness of their diversity curriculum.
