Barbara Snyder to Serve as President of the Association of American Universities

Barbara R. Snyder, president of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, has been chosen to lead the Association of American Universities. The organization represents 63 leading research universities in the United States, as well as two in Canada. She is expected to take on her new role this fall.

“The opportunity to serve as Case Western Reserve’s president has been the greatest professional privilege of my life,” President Snyder said. “But at a time when higher education itself faces such profound challenges across so many fronts, I felt an obligation to answer my peers’ call to work on behalf of all of our institutions.”

Snyder became president of Case Western Reserve University in 2007. Earlier, she was executive vice president and provost at Ohio State University.

President Snyder is a graduate of Ohio State University and the University of Chicago School of Law.
