President s remarks barbara snyder
Barbara Snyder earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from The Ohio State University and a law degree from the University of Chicago. Before Snyder became president of CWRU in July 2007, she was formerly the executive vice president and provost of The Ohio State University. During Snyder's tenure as the university president, CWRU has overcome a $20 million budget deficit, increased fundraising by nearly $60 million, and increased research dollars by more than $15 million.
Following the announcement that Gordon Gee would retire as President of the Ohio State University effective July 1, 2013, speculation arose that Snyder, the former Provost and Executive Vice President of Ohio State, could succeed Gee. In response, Snyder said, "I am proud to be president of Case Western Reserve and intend to continue in this role for many years to come."
In 2011, Cleveland.com reported Barbara R. Snyder's total compensation for the year of 2009 was $778,874.
