By using non-probability purposive sampling technique, a sample of 100 currently enrolled students of Punjab University was drawn.

Self constructed check lists and Adjective checklist were administrated on students to measure inter-group conflict, out-group contrast and in-group identification. Independent sample t-test and Pearson product correlation were used for inferential analysis. Results showed that there appears significant difference in perception of inter-group conflict between neutral students and members of student organizations. The findings also suggest that there is significant difference in perception of outgroup contrast between neutral students and members of student organizations. Gender differences in perception of inter-group conflict between males and female students are also significant. The results show that there are significant gender differences in perception of in-group identification between male students and female students. Highly positive correlation between in-group identification and outgroup contrast among students is also evident.
