CLAUDE M. STEELE
Stereotype and Identity Threat: Toward a Science of Diverse Community
Steele is recognized as a leader in the field of social psychology and for his commitment to the systematic application of social science to problems of major societal significance. 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 (e.g., self-image, 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 minority students in higher education.
