Hummel, Mary; Steele, Claude
Journal of Intergroup Relations, v23 n2 p28-32 Sum 1996
Describes the 21st Century Program at the University of Michigan, a program to address issues of academic achievement and student retention in higher education. The conceptual basis for this program comes from C. Steele's work that finds that there are disruptive pressures tied to racial stereotypes that in turn diminish academic performance. (SLD)
