Hayes named Charles F. Curtiss Distinguished Professor

Dermot Hayes, professor of economics and finance and Pioneer Hi-Bred International Chair in Agribusiness has been named a Charles F. Curtiss Distinguished Professor in Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Dermot has been with CARD since 1990, and in that time he has distinguished himself with awards at the college and university levels. He received a “Publication of Enduring Quality” from the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association in 2006, and was named a fellow of that association in 2007 as well.

The distinction of this special rank has been given in gratitude for Hayes’ many contributions to the university and will be part of his university title throughout his tenure at Iowa State and also part of his emeritus title upon his retirement from the university.

Dr. Hayes will be formally recognized for his significant achievement at the University Awards Ceremony later this spring.
