AIDS in Canada : knowledge, behaviour and attitudes of adults by Michael D Ornstein( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A questionnaire dealing with knowledge about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (aids) and how it is communicated, with behavior involving risk of human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) infection, and with public policy for dealing with aids was completed by 1,259 Canadian adults. Canadians had a generally high level of knowledge about the transmission of hiv infection, about the distinction between hiv infection and aids, and about the efficacy of different methods to prevent the transmission of hiv. Most information about hiv infection and aids came through the mass media. Canadians were strongly accepting of the wide involvement of a broad range of health, governmental, and voluntary organizations in promoting aids education. Concern about aids had led to significant changes in the sexual practices of respondents which in turn have reduced the likelihood of hiv transmission. Respondents were strongly supportive of the rights of HIV-infected persons to freedom from discrimination, and believed these rights should be protected by law. Only a small minority expressed opinions suggesting they fear that casual contact would lead to hiv infection. (Results are reported in chapters 2 through 5 of this report; the first chapter describes study objectives and survey procedures and the sixth and last chapter provides conclusions and recommendations; 39 data tables are included.)

The student experience at York University : the effects of income, race, and gender over four years by J. Paul Grayson( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents findings of a longitudinal study of student experiences and how they relate to college outcomes. The study was begun in 1994 and followed approximately 550 students attending the six daytime faculties at York University (Ontario) to the end of 1998. Data included yearly student surveys, focus group meetings conducted with first-year students, and administrative records. Particular attention was paid to differences among faculties, genders, and ethno-racial groups. Findings led to five general conclusions: (1) there was some improvement in students' in-class experiences over the four-year period; (2) students became less involved in many out-of-class activities but maintained a constant amount of interaction with friends over the four years; (3) overall, differences between first and fourth years were not large; (4) in general, the experiences of South Asian and Chinese origin students were relatively negative; and (5) there were virtually no differences based on family income and gender, though experiences varied somewhat among faculties. Individual chapters address the following topics: the university experience, the sample, reasons for attending the university, course work and classroom experiences, experiences outside of class, sources of support for studies, external influences, group experiences, and future jobs. (Contains approximately 85 references.) (Db)

Racial origin and withdrawal from university by J. Paul Grayson( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined voluntary and involuntary withdrawal rates of students of various racial origins at York University in Ontario (Canada). Data were obtained from three surveys of first-year students conducted in 1993, 1994, and 1995, and involving 1,864 students. Information on Ontario Academic Credit (oac) marks, first year grade point averages (GPAs), and enrollment status at the beginning of the second year was obtained from school records. It was found that differences in retention rates for Blacks and students of South Asian, Chinese, "other" non-European, and European origins were small. Only gender, perceptions of the value of a degree, a belief that students will return for a second year, and gpa were of utility in predicting voluntary withdrawal at the end of the first year. Increased hours of employment and living in temporary accommodations contributed to involuntary withdrawal. Similarly, being Black or of "other" racial origin also had a slight effect on the probability of not returning for a second year. (Contains 48 references.) (Mdm)

Globe and Mail reports, student experiences, and negative racial encounters by J. Paul Grayson( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the off-campus experiences of negative racial encounters among first-year students at York University in Ontario (Canada). Focus groups were conducted with 48 Black students, 26 students of Chinese origin, and 33 students of Italian or Portuguese origin in 1993-94. In descending order of frequency, students identified stores, jobs, schools, buses/trains, restaurants, encounters with police, everyday activities, offices, and media as sites in which they had negative racial encounters. In contrast to the frequency with which various sites were identified by students, articles dealing with "visible minorities" published by the Toronto (Ontario) "Globe and Mail" since 1977 focused overwhelmingly on sites in which the police were involved and, to a lesser extent, jobs. The focus group discussions indicated that students of all racial backgrounds may have negative racial encounters, that students of certain races/origins may have negative encounters in some sites while students of other races/origins may have similar experiences in other sites, that students felt that negative racial encounters were more prevalent off-campus than on-campus, and that some students talked about their negative experiences, particularly in stores and jobs, in a way that suggests an organization of experience in terms of systemic racism.
