Academic Department Heads Executive Committee

The Academic Department Heads Executive Committee (ADHEC) is a standing committee of the university revitalized in 2011 with support from Provost and Executive Vice President Dr. Jerry Gilbert. ADHEC serves to advise the Provost on issues affecting academic department heads, to plan and coordinate activities which seek to improve the performance of academic department heads, and to serve as a liaison among academic departments.

Committee Membership


  • ADHEC Coffee with the Provost
  • Spring Roundtable: Each spring, ADHEC hosts a roundtable to discuss a topic of interest among academic department heads. Information about the roundtable will be e-mailed to academic department/division heads.
