Before his resignation, Snyder was one of two deans left from former President Gary Ransdell’s tenure. Only Cheryl Stevens, the dean of Ogden College of Science and Engineering, remains in her position. Snyder had served as dean nearly four years and will resume his position as a faculty member in January 2020.
