As part of PCC's Student Equity activities, the Social Sciences Division is pleased to host an event featuring Philip Zimbardo (Stanford University), one of the most distinguished living psychologists.

Zimbardo will come to campus March 21 at 5:30 p.m. in Sexson Auditorium for a lecture titled "A Journey through My Life's Works; Inspiring Heroism, Combatting Prejudice, and Understanding Group Perception." The event is free and open to the public.

Philip Zimbardo has served as President of the American Psychological Association and designed and narrated the award winning 26-part PBS series Discovering Psychology. He has published more than 50 books and 400 professional and popular articles and chapters, among them Shyness, The Lucifer Effect, The Time Cure, The Time Paradox, and, most recently, Man, Interrupted.

A professor emeritus at Stanford University, Dr. Zimbardo has spent 50 years teaching and studying psychology. Dr. Zimbardo currently lectures worldwide and is actively working to promote his non-profit Heroic Imagination Project. His current research looks at the psychology of heroism. He asks: “What pushes some people to become perpetrators of evil, while others act heroically on behalf of those in need?”
