Abstract

This article presents the findings of a study on the development and validation of a 44-item Perceived Campus Caring Scale (PCCS) of 1,520 students in a university of Hong Kong. Factor analyses using principle-components extraction with varimax rotation yielded 7 factors with 44 items, namely, Faculty support, Non-faculty Support, Peer Relationship, Sense of Detachment, Sense of Belonging, Caring Attitude, Campus Involvement. The internal consistency was high for the 7 factors, ranging from Cronbach’s α =0.77 to 0.87. Correlations between the PCCS and the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) indicated good convergent validity of the PCCS. Except the Sense of Detachment subscale, which indicated a negative correlation with SWLS, the other six subscales have positive correlation with the scale. Students who experienced more caring on campus demonstrated a higher level of satisfaction with life.
