Understanding Prejudice Site

The purpose of the Understanding Prejudice site is to offer educational resources and information on prejudice, discrimination, multiculturalism, and diversity, with the ultimate goal of reducing the level of intolerance and bias in contemporary society. The site includes a range of interactive exercises including a baseline attitudes survey, a slide tour of prejudice in advertising, and more. image The Teacher’s Corner area of the site provides sample exercises and classroom activities for different educational levels, as well as sample writing assignments. UnderstandingPrejudice.org was established in 2002 with funding from the National Science Foundation (Grant Number 9950517) and McGraw-Hill Higher Education. The site was developed by Professor Scott Plous of Wesleyan University, manager of the Social Psychology Network also based at Wesleyan.
