Leah Halper, PhD

Leah Halper, PhD is a Research Associate and Interim Assistant Director with the Center for the Study of Student Life. Leah has a BS in Psychology from The Ohio State University and an MS and PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Ohio University. Broadly, Leah is interested in student motivation in classroom settings. More specifically, her research interests include understanding how self-efficacy (i.e., one’s beliefs in one’s capacities) affects training, effort and performance in higher education settings, particularly for underrepresented groups (e.g., females in certain Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics majors and males in certain caregiving-related majors such as Early Childhood Education).
