Ron Gallegos

Ronald I. Gallegos, a member of the CU Boulder community for 33 years, died July 4, 2018. He was 70.

In the ’80s, Gallegos established CU’s Pre-Collegiate Development Program, which provides college preparatory opportunities to low-income and first-generation students from Colorado.

“Ron was proud to work at the University of Colorado and, despite the fact that he was not an alum, he bled black and gold,” said Chris Pacheco, executive director of the Office of Pre-College Outreach and Engagement, in a eulogy. “He knew that the university was the perfect place to do the work he felt he was called to do and the university supported his work in every way they could.”
