Student perceptions of institutional justice in higher education
The purpose of this exploratory case study was to describe how student perceptions of institutional justice among undergraduates at the University of Oregon vary in terms of gender identity, ethnic identity, and sexual orientation and induce a working definition of institutional justice. For the purposes of this study, institutional justice referred to a student's perception of instructors, administrators, staff, their learning environment, and the even enforcement of the institution's rules. Institutional justice indicated a student's perception of the instructors, administrators, and staff as competent and versatile, the classroom environment as well managed, and the rules as understood and enforced equitably.
