Dr. David Yeager at CSUN: this year’s Terry Piper lecture on 2/15/17

Dr. David Yeager is this year’s keynote speaker for the 2017 Terry Piper Lecture Series at CSUN.  Dr. Yeager is a Psychology faculty member at the University of Texas, Austin, and a Fellow of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching at Stanford University.


In his address, The Psychology of Academic Achievement: How Belonging and Mindset Influence Student Success, Dr. Yeager will describe how individual students’ mindsets–their view of the world around them and their ability to control their place in it–can significantly influence their academic success.  He will share how seemingly simple psychosocial interventions can affect students’ perceptions of greater social belonging within the university and result in higher academic achievement.  He will discuss some of these interventions, which have been validated by empirical studies, and suggest opportunities for implementing similar interactions as a part of any class or office hour.
