Andrew Nathan is the Class of 1919 Professor of Political Science, the Chairman of the Political Science Department, and a member of the Interdepartmental Committee on Human Rights. He achieved fame editing and translating the Tiananmen Papers.

Nathan teaches Introduction to Human Rights and Chinese Foreign Policy among other courses. He lectures mostly from memory, rarely turning to his notes or using PowerPoint, which can be quite a relief after going through dozens of large Columbia lectures that use overhead presentations as a crutch.

Many of Nathan's students consider him to be among the best professors at Columbia. In recognition of this, he won the 2008 Mark Van Doren Award.
