Earl V. Snyder Innovation Management Center

The Earl V. Snyder Innovation Management Center is dedicated to the study and understanding of innovation management, providing Whitman students with the opportunity to delve into the diverse fields of business, law, engineering, and industrial design through an interdisciplinary curriculum. The innovation management program at the Whitman School was established in 1981, with the dedication of the Snyder Center occurring in 1993 through a generous endowment from the estate of Earl and Josephine Snyder. Due to the efforts of the Snyder Center, Whitman students are able to contribute to thriving innovation efforts in technology-based organizations, industrial products companies, and consumer goods companies and are recruited by companies such as Kodak, AT&T, IBM, and Lockheed Martin.
