Provost Lecture Series 


Stereotype and Identity Threat: Toward a Science of Diverse Community

Claude M. Steele is a social psychologist and a professor of psychology at UC Berkeley. He has also served in several major academic leadership positions: for the past two years as the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost at UC Berkeley, the three years prior as the I. James Quillen Dean for the School of Education at Stanford University from 2011–2014, and before that as the 21st Provost of Columbia University. Steele has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Education, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society.

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.
