Milton "Pat" Howell, retired associate vice president for facilities

Pat HowellMilton “Pat” Howell, former UNT associate vice president for facilities and associate vice chancellor for system facilities from 2001 to 2005, died Sept. 5 at his home in Albuquerque, N.M. Funeral services are pending.

Howell was retired and living in New Mexico at the time of his death. After retirement, he continued working for the UNT System for several years as a consultant on some of the university’s large planning and construction projects.

Howell was recognized by the university in March of this year with a UNT Presidential Citation for his integral role in the planning and development of facilities for the College of Engineering, athletics and sciences.

Howell joined UNT when the university was rapidly expanding. He played a key role in the purchase and development of a former manufacturing facility from Texas Instruments which became Discovery Park. Around the same time he helped UNT develop the former Liberty Christian School campus along Bonnie Brae Street into athletics facilities that met NCAA standards. Howell also had a major role in the construction of the Chemistry Building, Chestnut Hall, the Pohl Recreation Center, Honors Hall, and Legends Hall, among others.

He spearheaded the master planning for Victory Hall, the Athletics Center and Apogee Stadium, and he worked with the Texas Department of Transportation to plan the pedestrian bridge over Interstate 35E between Fouts Field and Apogee Stadium. Prior to joining UNT, Howell served as director of facilities management at the UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth.

Prior to joining UNT, Howell served in the Army Corps of Engineers, retiring as a colonel.
