Dale Hathaway joined the Winthrop faculty in 2014 as an adjunct in the Department of Philosophy and Religion. His previous position had been at Chaminade University in Honolulu where he was an Instructor in the College of Education after having retired from a career of 30 years as an Episcopal priest.
Hathaway did graduate study in Theology at Notre Dame University and from there taught for three years at St. Joseph's College in Rensselaer, Indiana. After moving to Hawaii and during his tenure as a rector he taught Bible studies at Iolani School during the summers.
