Catherine Good is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Baruch College and The Graduate Center at City University of New York. She is currently the head of the Basic and Applied Social Psychology area of graduate studies at The Graduate Center. Her research focuses on the social factors that impact students’ academic achievement, learning, motivation, and self-image. Specifically, she studies the impact of mindsets—theories of intelligence, belonging, and persistence—on students’ academic outcomes and teachers’ pedagogical practices. In addition to her basic research, she develops interventions for students, teachers, and parents to facilitate the development of effective and engaged learners. Her initial work laid the foundation for many mindset interventions that schools are adopting to improve student learning, motivation and achievement.
