Hodges University Names New Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs

Hodges University News

Hodges University is pleased to welcome Dr. John Meyer as its new executive vice president of academic affairs. Meyer will officially begin his new position April 2017.

“We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Meyer back to Hodges University as our chief academic officer. John’s focus on the intersection of higher education and workforce development aligns perfectly with Hodges’ mission, which is to serve as a socio-economic lever for our students, and a workforce development partner for employers in the communities we serve,” said Dr. Donald Wortham, president of Hodges University.

Graduating with his DBA in management from Argosy University, an MBA from Hodges University and a B.S. in accounting from Hodges, Meyer has spent nearly 20 years in public and private education. Most recently, he served as the dean of the School of Business and Technology at Florida SouthWestern State College.

In his more than 20 years of business and leadership experience, Dr. Meyer has practiced managerial consulting, owned and operated private automotive ventures and conducted corporate trainings. As an academician, his interests include “person-organization fit and the relationships that occupational cultures have on human behavior and, by extension, the success of organizations.”

Dr. Meyer will continue in his role as researcher and author for Workforce Now, a regional research initiative that identifies current and future workforce talent requirements for the five counties of Southwest Florida.

"I am delighted to be returning to Hodges University. Not only is it my alma mater, but I spent many years here as a professor of management. Hodges is nimble and entrepreneurial, and uniquely positioned to identify emerging higher educational needs in Southwest Florida--and to create quality programs to address those needs. I find it very exciting to be reunited with the university in this role, and I look forward to many years of Hodges’ continued growth and success," Meyer said.
