dc.description.abstract Determines the nature of the values, attitudes and identity experiences of groups of students at Potchefstroom University. The study was conducted at the end of October 1994 during a period of political transition in South Africa. A literature investigation was carried out, and an empirical investigation undertaken. A stratified random sample was selected from the student population. The group consisted of black students, white students and brown students. Values were measured by means of the scale of values of Schwartz and two self-compiled specific value questionnaires. Attitudes were measured by means of Du Toit's Contact Scale and Intercultural Perception Scale. Group identity experience was measured by means of the Helms' Race/Group Identity Scale. The results show that a diversity of values, attitudes and identity experiences were present among the three groups of students. With regard to specific values, a tendency existed among the white student grouping towards conservative values, while the brown and black student groups tended towards transformational values. Although the attitudes of all three groups towards ingroups were positive, the attitudes with regard to their outgroups were more negative. Most black students find themselves on the highest level of group identity development, while the brown and white groups are in the process of redefining their group identity. Cognitive acceptance of the other groups is present. en
