About the Donor

Glen Hower is a 1956 graduate of Washington State University and served more than four decades as a faculty member and administrator in the College of Engineering, later the College of Engineering and Architecture.  Glen and Juanita “Nita” Hower, a graduate of Kinman Business University, married in 1956.

In 1957, he joined the resident instructional staff at WSU and worked toward his MSEE, which was granted in 1961.  He earned his Ph.D. in 1963 at Stanford University as a Ford Foundation Fellow and rejoined the electrical engineering faculty at WSU.  Dr. Hower served three years as assistant dean of WSU’s College of Engineering, 10 years as chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering, six years as associate chair and acting chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and more than 10 years as either associate director or acting director of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.  He is highly respected by generations of students who took his circuits and electromagnetics classes.  He received a Washington State University Alumni Achievement Award in 2000, the same year the EME Building tower was named the Hower Tower.

The income from the Hower fund is used for student support in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
**First priority: undergraduate scholarships for students with any major within the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
**Second priority: funds for students’ out-of-class engineering activities.
