The Institut Fondamental d'Afrique Noire (IFAN) was founded in 1936 by the governor general of former French West Africa (AOF) as the Institut Français d'Afrique Noire. Its first director was the well known explorer Thédore Monod. The mission of the IFAN was to do scientific research about Africa, especially about the AOF. In 1960, the IFAN was integrated into the University of Dakar. In 1966, it changed its name into Institut Fondamental d'Afrique Noire.
