(May 10, 2012) The Cubberley Lecture is the School of Education's public forum for discussions of critical issues facing education. Stereotype threat is the experience of anxiety in a situation where a person has the potential to confirm a negative stereotype about his or her social group. In school, stereotype threat can cause underrepresented students to perform below their potential. The sting of stereotype threat can be felt by anyone -- male or female, black or white, Asian or Latino, young or old. Through a multimedia presentation, social psychologists, Steele, Cohen, and Walton will illuminate the experience of stereotype threat and highlight the powerful ways we can diminish it and close the achievement gap between groups.
