This project sought student opinion on the change in their cultural perspectives as a result of one unit of multicultural and indigenous studies.

In conjunction with the University of Illinois, an Australian edition of the Colour Blind Racial Attitudes Scale was administered to students in the multicultural and indigenous education unit at the start of the semester and at the end of the semester. The results are published in the listed paper.
