Students and enrollment growth
At left is a manuscript list of graduate students by discipline from 1966.
Among the notable names on this list is Daniel Ben-Amos who, after leaving IU, went on an assistant professorship in Anthropology at the University of California and later, became the Chair of Graduate Folklore and Folklife at the University of Pennsylvania.
In the first decade of the program, the numbers of students enrolled in African Studies course offerings went from 26 graduate and 17 undergraduate students during the 1960-1961 school year to 675 graduate and 788 undergraduate students during the 1969-1970 school year.
Today, outside of Hamilton Lugar School and core faculty, ASP affiliates (both faculty and students) are represented across 52 disciplines in 11 Schools, the College, as well as other affiliates in auxiliary units e.g. Libraries, and the IU Language Workshop.
