Buoyed by a record of excellence in research and leadership at The University of Southern Mississippi, Associate Professor Jeffrey Wiggins has been named the new director of the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials.
For the past year Wiggins has served as the school’s interim director, filling a void left by longtime Director Dr. Robert Lochhead, who relinquished the title to spend more time in the classroom and laboratory.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to serve the School, College of Science and Technology and the University in this capacity,” said Wiggins, who has been a member of the Southern Miss polymer science faculty since 2005. “I am particularly humbled by the confidence provided to me from my colleagues, students and the University administration.” Wiggins takes particular pride in the success rate polymer students have enjoyed in finding employment after graduation. Nearly 100 percent of undergraduates in the program find high-paying jobs immediately, while 100 percent of the graduate students have jobs waiting on them.
