In this episode, we interview Stanford psychology professor, Dr. Greg Walton. We discuss:
- The successful ways that Greg has used "wise interventions" to address social problems like educational inequalities.
- The importance of social belonging and how feelings of belonging uncertainty can create a downward spiral.
- Most importantly: Greg's new paper in Science! We focus on what the social belonging intervention is, why it worked, how the effects are influenced by the social context, how universities can learn from the intervention, and how many more students would graduate if the intervention was used at more institutions!
