Keynote address: "Academic Performance Under Stress"

We are thrilled to announce that Dartmouth's President-Elect, Sian Leah Beilock, will be delivering the keynote address this year. President Beilock is the outgoing president of Barnard College. A cognitive scientist, her research focuses on the factors influencing performance anxiety and strategies that can be used to perform well under pressure, both in the classroom and beyond. She is the author of Choke: What the Secrets of the Brain Reveal about Getting It Right When You Have To (2010), How the Body Knows Its Mind: The Surprising Power of the Physical Environment to Influence How You Think and Feel (2015), and numerous scholarly works and op-eds.
