Stephanie Fryberg, a member of the Tulalip Tribes, is the University Diversity and Social Transformation Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan. Prior to this role, Dr. Fryberg was jointly appointed as Associate Professor in American Indian Studies and Psychology at the University of Washington. She also previously served as Associate Professor of Psychology and affiliate faculty member in American Indian Studies at the University of Arizona, and as the Director of Cultural Competency, Learning Improvement and Tulalip Community Development for the Marysville School District in Marysville, Washington. Her primary research interests focus on how social representation of race, culture, and social class influence the development of self, psychological well-being, and educational attainment. In 2011, she testified before the US Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on the topic of “Stole Identities: The impact of racist stereotypes on Indigenous people.” Dr. Fryberg translated Carol Dweck and colleagues’ individual-oriented growth mindset intervention into a communal-oriented version, which was given to students on her tribe’s reservation and led to significant improvement in students’ educational outcomes compared to the individualistic version of the intervention. She received her master’s and doctorate degrees in Social Psychology from Stanford University, where in 2011 she was inducted into its Multicultural Hall of Fame.
