Anthropology Department Chair
Professor of Anthropology
University of Southern California (USC)

Dr. Stanford received his BA in anthropology and zoology from Drew University, before completing the anthropology MA program at Rutgers. In 1990, he earned a Ph D in anthropology from UC Berkeley. He has taught classes at UC Berkeley, University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), and USC, in subjects that include evolution, ecology and primate sociology. Dr. Stanford is currently a professor of anthropology at USC, where he has been since 1992. During his tenure at USC, he has won several awards for teaching, including the USC General Education Teaching Award for 2000-2001.

Along with over 80 publications, Dr. Stanford has a total of nearly two years experience in the field. His studies include the behavioral ecology of chimpanzees and mountain gorillas in Uganda, the predator-prey ecology of chimpanzees and red colobus monkeys in Tanzania, and the social behavior of the capped langur in Bangladesh. As a result, he was awarded with the Phi Kappa Phi Faculty Recognition Award in 2000.
