Dr. Paul Gowen is retiring in May, 2006, after 34 years at Hood College. He served as chairperson of the Department of Mathematics/Mathematics and Computer Science/Computer Science for 18 of those years. He also took on major administrative responsibilities, serving twice as acting co-dean of academic affairs and as president of the faculty senate, as well as serving on every major commitee of the College, often several times. He has taught courses ranging from sublime (Computational Complexity) to mundane (Math 099) and everything in between. His legacy to us is not just the department and programs he has shaped, but the many students he has taught and inspired over those years.
Note: We welcome all photos of the department that you might have. If you do not have them posted online, send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them on the department web site.
