Dr Richard Lee

Cultural Psychologist

A Distinguished McKnight University Professor and Morse-Alumni Distinguished University Teaching Professor at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Richard Lee explores how a person’s culture, ethnicity, and race affect their mental and physical well-being as well as their future success.Through his career in psychology, Dr. Lee has discovered children become aware at an early age of how they are treated unfairly based on these factors. He believes that by teaching parents how to approach the conversation around discrimination, together we can start to heal racial trauma and improve outcomes for future generations.
