Regents Policy Manual (RPM)
Academic Deans Council
The Associate Deans Academic Council (ADAC) serves in an advisory capacity regarding academic matters to the Academic Deans Council and other university officials. ADAC assists in the development, review and approval of academic rules and procedures; reviews and approves curriculum changes (course deletions, additions and course changes); proposes and reviews changes to scheduling and registration processes and university catalogs; and reviews and recommends new academic programs and changes to existing programs.
ADAC advises the Academic Deans Council and other university officials on academic matters. It makes final decisions on changes to courses including additions and deletions.
The chair is an elected position. ADAC holds an election at the end of each spring semester to select a vice-chair for the next academic year. The person serves as vice-chair for one year and then moves into the chair's position the following year.
Membership is tied to positions: associate deans on the Las Cruces campus (voting members), vice-presidents for academic affairs at the community college campuses (voting members), and representatives from other offices involved in academic issues including the provost's office, the registrar's, and ICT (non voting members).
The terms of voting members (associate deans and CC vice presidents) are for the duration of their tenure in those positions.
The units represented on ADAC (academic colleges, provost's office, registrar's office, ICT, etc.) fill vacant positions with either interim or permanent appointments. Those appointments then become voting and non-voting members of ADAC.
