About

Renowned Social Psychologist; Expert on Stereotype Theory, Race and Education

Professor of Psychology at Stanford University

Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, UC Berkeley (2014-2016)

Author of New York Times Bestseller, Whistling Vivaldi

Described by a peer as "the Albert Einstein of social psychology," Claude Steele is renowned for his research on stereotype threat and its inextricable links to race in America. His groundbreaking research sheds light on differences in academic and athletic performance in minority students, and the averse effects of stigmatization. His critically-acclaimed research became the basis for his New York Times Education Bestseller Whistling Vivaldi, a compelling look at race, stereotype and performance described as, "An intellectual odyssey of the first order―a true tour de force."

A former Provost of Columbia University and Dean for the School of Education at Stanford University, Steele has been responsible for implementing academic policies at some of the country's most prestigious institutions. He also served as a faculty member at Stanford University, holding appointments as the director of the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity, and as director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.

Heralded for applying his academic work to problems of major societal significance, and for his ability to break down complex social science theories for any audience, Steele has been sought-out to discuss issues of diversity, race and education at everywhere from Ivy League institutions to prestigious forums.
