Einolf to Take The Reins at Indiana Tech

Posted: Updated:
FORT WAYNE -

Indiana Tech Board of Trustees Chair Janet Chrzan says the school's ninth president in 86 years is the "right leader for our future." Karl Einolf, who currently serves as business school dean at Mount St. Mary's University in Maryland, will succeed Arthur Snyder, who is retiring.

Einolf beat out around 70 applicants for the position. He served as acting president of the Maryland school from February to June.

Chrzan says "Dr. Einolf's academic and business leadership experience, his character and vision impressed everyone on our search team. He is the right leader for our future as we look to continue building on the great levels of success achieved by Dr. Snyder during his time as president."

Einolf comes to the Fort Wayne-based institution at a key time in its history. In November, Indiana Tech dropped its law school that launched in 2013. Over the last 13 years, enrollment has doubled and the downtown campus has added six residence halls and a new athletic center.

Einolf says "I am excited to lead Indiana Tech as it embarks on a new chapter in its storied history. Indiana Tech's team of entrepreneurial administrators, faculty, and staff are committed to delivering high-quality career-focused academic programs to both traditional and adult learners. I am eager to be a part of this team and to help enrich the student experience at Indiana Tech."

Snyder will become president emeritus after leading the school since 2003. Einolf holds degrees from The Pennsylvania State University, Johns Hopkins University and Lehigh University. He will officially take on the new role on July 1.
