Prior to that, he was chair of the Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology and professor of counseling and educational psychology for 16 years.
He led the department to regional and national prominence, including national accreditation.
Snow was the principal investigator and director of the largest grant from a private source in the history of the university.
Before coming to UWG, he taught at Oklahoma State University, which he arrived at after teaching at the University of Idaho, where he received his Ph.D.
Snow also has a master’s degree from Oklahoma State, a bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University, and an associate degree from Boise Junior College (now Boise State University).
