The number one factor in reducing hates and sterotypes, according to social pschology, is EDUCATION. Students who take courses related to stereotypes and prejudice have lower scores of hate, bias, and discrimination (Rudman, Ashmore, & Gary, 2001). It is also a phenomenon with education in general populations as well (Sidanius, Sinclair, & Pratto, 2006).
Social norms and needs are changing and it is most talked about and learnt in educational settings, thus Cut H8 is committed to educating the student of WSU on how to stop hate, bais, and discrimination on our campus. Below is a video galary that talk about issues around hate, bais, and discrimination around the world.
