About Us

Our Mission

Reducingstereotypethreat.org was created by two social psychologists as a resource for faculty, teachers, students, and members of the general public who are 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 on stereotype threat 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. New research summary articles will be added each year.
