Office of the Chancellor

Read a welcome message from Chancellor Gallagher.


Patrick D. Gallagher, PhD, is the 18th Chancellor and Chief Executive Officer of the University of Pittsburgh. He most recently served as Acting Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce and Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He earned a PhD in physics from Pitt in 1991.


About the Chancellor's Office

As Pitt's chief executive officer, the chancellor serves as a public advocate for the University's interests and as a leader who sets its goals and governs its progress. The chancellor fosters supportive working relationships with faculty, staff, and students; builds close ties to the community and Pitt's external constituents; and raises funds to further the institution's missions of education, research, and economic development.


Leadership Team

In addition to working with the University's faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees, Chancellor Gallagher collaborates closely with his senior staff, a team that functions much like a presidential cabinet.
