Linda Tropp, Professor of Social Psychology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, will give a public lecture titled “Racial Bias and Racial Anxiety: Prospects for Building Positive Relations between Diverse Groups.” Tropp is an expert on how members of different groups approach and experience contact with each other, and how group differences in power or status affect views of and expectations for cross-group relations. She has worked on state and national initiatives to improve interracial relations in schools, and with non-governmental and international organizations to evaluate applied programs designed to reduce racial and ethnic conflict.

Tropp’s visit is part of the Leading Voices in Higher Education Speaker Series, which brings creative and strategic leaders from a variety of disciplines to Dartmouth to discuss critical issues in higher education.
