Greg Dunaway selected to be MSU dean



Greg Dunaway, a longtime Mississippi State University sociology professor and former sociology department head is the university’s new dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. In 2011, Dunaway became associate dean of the college and, since last year, has served as its interim dean. A Baltimore, Md., native, he was the college’s Thomas Bailey Professor of Sociology from 2008-11 and, as department head, led in developing the state’s only criminology degree program. In addition to master’s and doctoral degrees in sociology from the University of Cincinnati, Dunaway holds a bachelor’s degree in the same field from Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore. Last year, he was honored with the Dean of Students Award of Excellence in recognition of contributions to student well-being at the 135-year-old land grant university. He is the second to receive the MSU Division of Student Affairs honor since its inception in 2007. Dunaway is a member of the Southern Criminal Justice Association and an editorial board member for the American Journal of Criminal Justice.
