"[Julie] helped me understand that I was not wrong to stereotype, but that I needed to take a hard look at my own biases and cognitive process around grouping people so that I could then understand my own behavior and how that behavior may be negatively affecting others."
Murray Shortall '03, on Prof. Woodzicka's teaching and research
