Educational Affairs

Persistent racial disparities in the educational achievement and disciplining of American students highlight the need to understand and shift educational policies and practices as they relate to race. In her talk for the Help Center, Camilla Griffiths will highlight research that clarifies how kids learn and understand race as they develop, as well as research on the role that race has and continues to play in our K-12 education system. She will also provide evidence-based suggestions for how to help school communities move away from colorblindness and towards race-consciousness and anti-racism.

About the Speaker

Camilla Griffiths is an advanced doctoral researcher who studies the role of race in K-12 educational contexts. As a social psychologist, her work interrogates how expectations based on race (stereotypes) influence teacher-student relationships and educational outcomes for students of color. She also researches other factors in the school context that foster psychological safety for all students in the classroom, such as productive discussions about identity and healthy parent-teacher relationships.

Free and open to all faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars and retirees of Stanford University, LPCH and Stanford Hospital and clinics. Eligible dependents may also attend.
