The purpose of this pilot study was to examine the effects of the undergraduate course, Cultural Diversity in Communication, on attitudes and behaviors of undergraduate students in communication sciences and disorders. Pre/post survey data were collected during spring semesters 2005/2006, from 24 white participants (23 female, 1 male) through the Adapted Spiritual Involvement Scale. The surveys assessed attitudes and behaviors related to cultural issues including discrimination, white privilege, and interaction with and knowledge about differing cultures. By the end of the course, it was found that student attitudes improved significantly across 8 of the 14 areas assessed, with the most notable gains found for the recognition of white privilege.
