Statement by CMU President Farnam Jahanian on Pitt Chancellor Pat Gallagher's Plan to Step Down in 2023

“Pat Gallagher is an exceptional leader, collaborator and champion for higher education who has done an extraordinary job leading the University of Pittsburgh over the past eight years, especially during the pandemic. I am grateful to call him a friend and to have had the opportunity to work alongside him on countless initiatives, such as attracting new opportunities to the region and several educational and research collaborations. His dedication to excellence in student outcomes, faculty achievement and research output has advanced the Pitt community in numerous ways and the impact of his leadership has been felt throughout the Pittsburgh region. On behalf of the entire Carnegie Mellon University community, I wish him the very best as he prepares for a transition to the Pitt faculty next summer and I look forward to continuing to work with him during the coming year.”
