Umoja welcomes Stanford psychology professor Dr. Claude Steele to campus on February 16 from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in TAV-130 or by Zoom.

Claude Mason Steele (born January 1, 1946) is a social psychologist and emeritus professor at Stanford University, where he is the I. James Quillen Endowed Dean, Emeritus at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, and Lucie Stern Professor in the Social Sciences, Emeritus. Before that, he had been a professor of psychology at various institutions for almost 40 years. 

He is best known for his work on stereotype threat and its application to minority student academic performance. His earlier work dealt with research on the self (like self-image and self-affirmation) as well as the role of self-regulation in addictive behaviors.  

In 2010, he released his book, Whistling Vivaldi and Other Clues to How Stereotypes Affect Us, summarizing years of research on stereotype threat and the underperformance of students in higher education.
