- The Study developed the Private College Students’ Identity Stigma Questionnaire (PCSISQ), which was designed to measure the subjective experience of being a private college student, with dimensions measuring Stereotype, Internalized Stigma, Drawback Behavior and Stigma Resistance. Results showed that PCSISQ had good reliability and validity, which could be an effective tool on measuring private college students’ identity stigma. The researcher also investigated 895 private colleges in Fujian Province by using PCSISQ. The survey results suggested that the private college students do have considerable high level of identity stigma as being private, which was so different from the same group in western countries. Furthermore, female students were found suffering greater level than male ones on the Stereotype and Internalized Stigma dimensions.
