Mr. and Mrs. David Gallagher
The Barbara and Arthur Gallagher Scholarship was created by the Baruch College Trustees and Baruch College faculty and staff to acknowledge David Gallagher’s service to, and love for, Baruch College and its students. Mr. Gallagher began working as a consultant for Baruch College several years ago and then became Vice President for College Advancement in 1999. He led the College through the most successful fund-raising period in its history, tripling the endowment to $100 million and increasing annual giving fivefold. Mr. Gallagher provided visionary leadership in the creation of centers and institutes, created robust relationships with donors, and received the support of major benefactors who proudly lent their name to many parts of our campus. He was a friend to students and helped many obtain their first positions at prominent institutions. His concern for students is evident in all his activities, as he helped bring an undergraduate real estate program to the College, improved career services, supported academic advising, and obtained resources to support the performing arts. Baruch is grateful for Mr. Gallagher’s endless dedication to the College, as well as his energy, humor, and insight.
