Together, Columbia University and Barnard College have one of the strongest faculties in the United States. Our "core faculty" members are either appointed at the Institute, or have an appointment as a research fellow within the Institute. A number of faculty members work closely with the Institute, cross-listing their courses as part of the African-American Studies curriculum and participating in the events and programs sponsored by the Institute; they are the Institute's "affiliated faculty". The core faculty of the African-American Studies Program:

 
Steven Gregory
Director, Institute for Research in African-American Studies
Director, Graduate Studies-African-American Studies Program.
Associate Professor of Anthropology and African-American Studies
