Jessica Good joined the faculty in 2011 after receiving her B.A. from Washington & Lee University and completing her M.A. and Ph.D. in Social Psychology at Rutgers University. Her courses include General Psychology, Social Psychology, Research Methods in Social Psychology, and seminars in Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination as well as the Psychology of Gender.
Dr. Good's research interests broadly address stereotyping and discrimination, generally falling into two lines of research: 1) social identities and self-evaluations, and 2) experiences and perceptions of discrimination and prejudice. For example, she has published work on multiracial identity and connectedness to ethnic minority communities, gender identity and motivation to conform to gender norms, as well as more applied work on perceptions of women who confront sexism and methods of reducing gender differences in performance in STEM fields.
Dr. Good currently serves as Communication Editor for the Society for the Teaching of Psychology's Early Career Psychologist Council. She has received awards for both her teaching (Distinguished Contribution to Undergraduate Education - Rutgers University) and research (Annual Research Award - Association for Women in Psychology), as well as grants and fellowships to support her scholarship (Grant-in-Aid - Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, Graduate Fellowship - Jacob K. Javits Foundation, Department of Education). Dr. Good is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Omicron Delta Kappa, the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, the Association for Women in Psychology, and the Society for the Teaching of Psychology.
