Tim Cowan

Tim Cowan is Professor of Philosophy at Lone Star College Montgomery.  He is an experienced instructor and advocate of un-educating his students.  Taking his cue from former philosophy instructors at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, where he earned his B.A. in Philosophy, and Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo where he earned his M.A. in Philosophy, Tim takes pride in the great confusion that philosophy has to offer and has served on the faculty of Lone Star College Montgomery for the past eight years receiving numerous awards and honors. In 2010 Professor Cowen was selected as the student nominated Shining Star recipient at Lone Star College Montgomery, and received this award a second time in 2015.  Tim has also been awarded Lone Star College Montgomery’s Advisor of the year in 2010 and 2012 for his work mentoring honors students in Phi Theta Kappa, and philosophy students in ‘The Academy’.
