The trustees of Ivy Tech Community College have extended the contract of President Thomas Snyder. Snyder has been at his post since 2007, and school officials say he has been integral in moving the college through its year accreditation program.

Snyder’s contract, which was set to expire in 2014, now runs through June of 2017. He says in the next few years, he wants to expand on what he’s done to increase enrollment of students entering a technical workforce.

“It ranges from certificates in welding, which there is high demand throughout the state, certificates in machine tools and advance manufacturing, which there is also high demand, to health sciences,” he says.

Prior to becoming president of Ivy Tech, Snyder was Chairman and CEO/President of Flagship Energy Systems and Delco Remy International. He leads the largest public college in the state, with more than 200,000 students enrolled at Ivy Tech’s dozens of statewide campuses.
