Jeffrey Haupt, who previously served as the painting concentration coordinator in the Department of Art, was recently named associate dean for Mississippi State University’s College of Architecture, Art and Design. The move allows Associate Dean Greg Hall to concentrate his work as interim director of the college’s Building Construction Science program.
Haupt received his Master of Fine Arts from Indiana University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art. He began his teaching career in 1997 at Indiana University and then taught at the John Waldron Arts Center before joining the Mississippi State art department faculty in 1999 as an assistant professor. He was promoted to full professor in 2010.
