Police Officer, Educator, Entreprenuer
To Adam, an Orange County native, Chapman University seemed like the obvious choice. While attending Chapman as an undergraduate student working toward a bachelor of arts degree in political science, Adam participated in several programs, including the Orange County Internship Program, where he was a law clerk for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Upon graduating from Chapman in 2004, he became a member of the Southern California law enforcement community. Adam returned to Chapman in 2008 to pursue a master’s degree in organizational leadership and a graduate certificate in the administration and leadership of criminal justice organizations in 2010.
Adam is an adjunct faculty member at several local higher education institutions and a professional trainer and consultant for a number of businesses and private universities. For his accomplishments in municipal service, Adam was honored with Knighthoods from two internationally chartered and recognized orders of chivalry. He also serves on several association boards in both the public and private sector, in addition to non-profits. Adam is a member of several Chapman associations, including Chapman University Alumni Association Board of Directors (serving as chair of the University Advancement Committee), Chapman’s 1861 Club, Alumni Legacy, President’s Circle and the Charles C. Chapman Heritage Society.
