Hayhurst Named Dean of College of Science and Technology

More than 35 years in higher education, which includes extensive administrative and engineering credentials, made Dr. David T. Hayhurst the clear choice to become the new dean of the College of Science and Technology at The University of Southern Mississippi.

Hayhurst, who previously served as dean of the College of Engineering at both San Diego State University (2002-2013) and the University of South Alabama (1992-2002), will begin his new role at Southern Miss on August 15.

The College of Science and Technology at Southern Miss is one of six degree-granting colleges at Southern Miss with approximately 175 full time faculty members spanning multiple campuses and educating more than 3,600 undergraduate and graduate students.

A Massachusetts native, Hayhurst also served as chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Cleveland State University (1985-1991). He earned his undergraduate in chemical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute; his master’s degree in chemical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his doctorate in chemical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
