Snyder Joins NAIA Council of Presidents
Indiana Tech President Arthur E. Snyder, Ed.D., has been chosen as the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference’s representative to the Council of Presidents for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.
The Council of Presidents is the primary governing body of the NAIA, which oversees athletic programs at its nearly 300 member colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.
Dr. Snyder is in his sixth year as president of Indiana Tech and has overseen growth in the university’s total enrollment as well as the scope of athletic programs. The university has added men’s and women’s tennis, golf, cross country, and track and field as well as women’s volleyball in recent years. Men’s and women’s lacrosse teams will debut in the 2009-10 academic year.
In addition to his position at Indiana Tech, Dr. Snyder serves as chairman of the Sisters of Providence Mission Advisory Board and chairman of the Downtown Educational Partnership. He is also a member of Fort Wayne Business Forum and Quest Club.
The purpose of the NAIA is to promote the education and development of students through intercollegiate athletic participation. Member institutions, although varied and diverse, share a common commitment to high standards and to the principle that participation in athletics serves as an integral part of the total educational process.
