Reducingstereotypethreat.org was created by
resource for faculty, teachers, students, and the
general public interested in the phenomenon of
stereotype threat. This website offers summaries
of research on stereotype threat and discusses unresolved
issues and controversies in the research literature. Included are some research-based
suggestions for reducing the negative consequences of
stereotyping, particularly in academic settings.
Research is always progressing,
adding complexity and nuance. Although we will try to
reflect new developments in research on this topic,
we encourage people not to view this site as the
authoritative or exhaustive treatment of this issue.
