Western Kentucky University is making another leadership change in the Potter College of Arts and Letters. 

In an email on Wednesday afternoon to faculty and staff, Acting Provost Cheryl Stevens announced that Dr. Larry Snyder will resume serving as dean effective April 15.  He will finish his term which ends June 30, 2021.

Dr. Merrall Price, who was serving as interim dean, will remain as Special Assistant to the Provost until she begins her role as Associate Dean in Potter College effective July 1. 

The perception among many in the campus community was that Dr. Snyder was forced to resign as dean of Potter College earlier this month.  In her statement, Provost Stevens didn’t give a reason for his re-instatement but said the university needs stability in leadership moving forward.
