He was appointed Assistant Professor (1987) and he was promoted to Associate Professor
(1993 - Present), and Director of Graduate Studies (1999 - 2002), in the new Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies. Dr. McElroy dedicated his life to the African American Studies Department at Indiana University, and he enjoyed teaching young people.
