In Memory of

Picture of Dr. Dennis Horn
Dr. Dennis Horn
Dean Emeritus, School of Engineering and Applied Science


This past spring, we said goodbye to one of our beloved GU community leaders and Dean Emeritus of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, Dr. Dennis Horn.

Dr. Horn served as the Dean of our School from 1997-2012, and incredible 15 years.  Under his stewardship enrollment more than doubled.  He oversaw major renovations and expansion the Herak Center, along with the 2008 construction of the PACCAR Center for Applied Science.  He also helped establish an Engineering in Italy program for students in 2010. 

His leadership resulted in the development of new undergraduate degree programs in computer engineering and engineering management, and development of a graduate certificate program in transmission and distribution.  Dr. Horn also led several of our programs successfully through the accreditation process, effectively working to help our School reach new levels of excellence. 

Dr. Horn is survived by his wife, Sandra Horn, and his sons, Darrin, Kevin, Christian, Brendon, Colin (BA ’09), and Justin.  Cards and expressions of condolences may be sent to: 7019 N Fischer Ct, Spokane, WA, 99208.  Gifts may be made to the Dr. Dennis R. and Sandra W. Horn Engineering in Florence Endowed Scholarship at Gonzaga University, Office of University Advancement, 502 E Boone Avenue, Spokane WA 99258-0098.

 

A Celebration of Life service will be held in honor of Dr. Dennis Horn on July 2 at 1:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane.
