Peyrefitte named interim dean of College of Business at Southern Miss | Schools
University of Southern Mississippi Provost Dr. Denis Wiesenburg has announced that Dr. Joseph Peyrefitte, senior associate dean in the College of Business, will serve as interim dean during the college’s period of transition.
Peyrefitte will assume the dean’s role from Dr. Lance Nail, who will leave Southern Miss on Aug. 15 to accept a similar position at Texas Tech University. Nail has served as dean of the College of Business since July, 2008.
“I am honored to serve the college in this new role which I define as nurturing and developing trusting relationships with our stakeholders,” said Peyrefitte, who has been at Southern Miss for the past 10 years. “Our stakeholders include faculty, staff, students, the business community and a number of important campus constituencies. This transition period might be an uncertain time for some, so I intend to inspire confidence in our ability to continue the progress made by our college under Dean Nail’s leadership.”
