Interim VP of Academic Affairs Named at Gordon College

Ed Wheeler has been named Interim Vice President of Academic Affairs at Gordon College.

Wheeler was at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah for 21 years most recently serving as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

He earned his undergraduate degree, with honors, from Samford University and a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. He has been a mathematics professor for most of his career and is the author of several mathematics textbooks.

His wife, Claire, is a practicing clinical psychologist. The couple has two children, both of whom are educators, and one grandchild.

Wheeler said he decided to accept the one-year term at Gordon College to be closer to family members who live in the area and “to contribute in a small way to the excellent work that is being done at Gordon College.”

Wheeler replaces Robert Vaughan who is pursuing other opportunities in academia.
