President Snyder Renews Pledge to Communicate Regularly with Campus


Dear Campus Community,

Today begins my first day in office as your president. I want to offer my sincere gratitude to all of you for your support, kind thoughts and generous welcome to campus.

I am privileged to once again serve at Case Western Reserve University, and I look forward to the exciting and important work that lies ahead of us. The senior leadership team and I will diligently apply ourselves to ensure that our university continues on its mission of dynamic teaching, renowned scholarship and world-changing research. We will work conscientiously to preserve our rich traditions and provide the important infrastructure for an academic environment that fully supports our students, faculty and staff. At the same time, we will engage all members of the university community in the process of developing and executing a plan with measurable results to enhance the academic stature of Case Western Reserve University. We will do this together. I will rely on the academic leadership including Interim Provost Jerry Goldberg, our deans and members of the faculty throughout this process to realize our potential as one of the nation's top urban research universities.

I want to thank Dr. Eastwood for his distinguished service as interim president. I look forward to working with Greg, not only as the director of the Inamori Center, but as a trusted adviser. I also will continue his pledge to our campus community to provide open and frequent communication on important aspects of the university.

Over the next several weeks I will be visiting our schools and units across campus. I look forward to meeting all of you and invite and encourage us to be involved members of our university community, to work together to solve problems, to stimulate ideas and to contribute to our society.

Barbara R. Snyder
