Abstract: 

The purpose of present study is to examine the relationship between ethnic identity and cultural congruity with political and social values of students. Research sample includes 412 students of Islamic Azad university of Kermanshah selected through multistage clustered sampling. They are asked to fill in questionnaire on demographic characteristics, ethnic identity and cultural congruity scales, and hierarchy of value questionnaire. Pierson correlation, regression, and MANOVA were used for data analysis. Findings of the research indicate that ethnic identity (r=0.453), seek for ethnic identity (r=0.403), belonging and commitment to ethnic identity (r=0.388), cultural congruity (r=0.385) have positive correlation with political values among students. Ethnic identity (r=0.317), seek for ethnic identity (r=0.294), belonging, and commitment to ethnic identity (r=0.301) and cultural congruity (r=0.382) have positive correlation with social values among the students. Results of regression showed that ethnic identity and cultural congruity explain 25 percent of the variance in political values and 17 percent of the variance in social values among the students. Results of MANOVA indicate that the mean of political and social values in male students was higher than female students (p<0.05). But the mean of ethnic identity and cultural congruity was not different for male and female students. Regarding the research results, it is suggested that paying attention to positive ethnic identity and cultural congruity can prevent formation of negative political and social value among the students.
