People of Africana

Africana Studies is supported by a diverse convivial and collegial community of faculty, staff, and students.  Our core faculty members are drawn from several departments in the Humanities and the Social Sciences. The program also benefits from the contribution of affiliated faculty who participate by cross listing their courses. The interdisciplinary faculty is accomplished in terms of teaching, research, and community engagement deeply dedicated to excellence in Africana Studies. 

Students are active participants in Africana Studies and contribute to shared governance by the representation of the Presidents of student groups such as the African Cultural Society, Black Student Organization, Students of the Caribbean Association, and Africana House.

The administration and management of the program is coordinated by our program director Professor Artisia Green and academic program coordinator Ms. Latasha Simms, with the support of a student program assistant.

Africana Studies fiscally manages the resident learning community Africana House through the advisement of Prof. Artisia Green.
