Stereotype Threat-Based Diversity Programming: Helping Students While Empowering and Respecting Faculty
Artze-Vega, Isis; Richardson, Leslie; Traxler, Adrienne
To Improve the Academy, v33 n1 p74-93 Sep 2014
As college student populations grow increasingly diverse, centers for teaching and learning are often charged with promoting inclusive teaching practices. Yet faculty cite many affective barriers to diversity training, and we often preach to the choir. These challenges led us to seek alternate routes for diversity programming, and stereotype threat has become the centerpiece of our endeavors. This chapter describes stereotype threat and related interventions, outlines our efforts, and offers evidence of its surprising impact. It also identifies the features of stereotype threat that appealed to faculty, led them to make pedagogical changes, and inspired them to spread the word.
