Shaun Wiley is a Professor of Psychology at The College of New Jersey, where he has taught since 2009. He completed his B.A. at Sarah Lawrence College and his Ph.D. at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York in the Social-Personality Psychology program.

His research interests include how people manage their multiple, sometimes conflicting social identities; when members of advantaged and disadvantaged groups are willing to challenge oppression; and how members of advantaged groups can be effective allies for equality. As two examples, he has examined how the ethnic and national identities of immigrants and their descendants relate to perceived discrimination and protest, as well as how women perceive ally men.

In addition to numerous journal articles, he has co-edited one volume, Social categories in everyday experience (2012, American Psychological Association) and one issue of Journal of Social Issues, “To be both (and more): Immigration and identity multiplicity” (2019). His recent research has been funded by the Russell Sage Foundation.
