NACUA's Life Membership Award

Brian A. Snow - 2004

Brian A. Snow retired in July 2003 from the active practice of law, after serving for 15 years as General Counsel for the Colorado State University System and its constituent institutions – Colorado State University, the University of Southern Colorado, and Ft. Lewis College. Prior to assuming that position, Mr. Snow was in private practice in Denver, served as Assistant Dean and Associate Professor of Law at the University of Arkansas School of Law, and was a Staff Reporter for the Wall Street Journal. He received B.S.B.A and M.A. (Political Science) degrees from the University of Arkansas and a J.D. degree from the Duke University School of Law, where he was a member of the Editorial Board of the Duke Law Journal. He also attended the Iliff School of Theology in 1996-1998.

Mr. Snow was a long-time member (from 1997-2003) of the Editorial Board of The Journal of College and University Law and was a member of the 1999 Authors Committee for the Education Law Reporter. He served on the Site Selection Committee and Committee on Program for the Annual Conference. He has been a frequent contributor to The Journal of College and University Law and a frequent speaker at NACUA Continuing Legal Education workshops and Annual Conferences. Most recently, he was a co-editor of the NACUA Handbook for Lawyers New to Higher Education.

Upon his retirement from the Colorado State University System, Mr. Snow was given the title of General Counsel Emeritus, the first and only such title at that institution. However, his contributions as a friend to all, a mentor to many, and as the always consummate professional are among the qualities most recognized and remembered by his NACUA colleagues.

NACUA is pleased to present Brian Snow with Life Membership in recognition of these exemplary attributes, and for his unparalleled contributions, accomplishments and achievements to the Association through his writing, his speaking, and his being.
