Professor Emeritus James Snyder passes away

Professor Emeritus James Snyder died Monday, June 24, 2013. Jim, an alumnus (M.Arch., MCP, and PhD.) taught at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee before joining our faculty in 1980 as a professor in both architecture and urban planning. He helped initiate the Studies in Urban Securities Group (SUSG) in 1985, chaired the Urban and Regional Planning Program (1982-1984), and served as associate dean (1996-99) and interim dean (1997-98). His teaching exhibited a strong commitment to the integration of sound fiscal and physical planning within a well-designed and safely-built environment, and his applied research, working with faculty and students, focused on urban security and safety.
