Who's Who: Students
Gallagher's Retirement.
At the spring faculty meeting, President Gallagher announced his
plan to retire at the end of the academic year 1994-95, that is, on June 30, 1995. In his seven
years as president, Gallagher led the school to the successful completion of the Design for the
Future capital campaign which raised beyond its announced goal of $40 million. When it
concluded, the Campaign had amassed over $58 million in pledges and gifts, and upon Andrew
Schuler's death, an additional $20 million was added. This paid for the Cheel Campus Center.
With Cheel, the CAMP Building, and extensive landscaping, the hill campus underwent
dramatic changes.
