Following her time at Ursuline, Megan Gallagher studied at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA where she fell in love with sociology and the study of people and cultures. Through this interest and her love of travel, Megan worked to create a unique space for herself in the world of global higher education admissions over the past 12 years. She’s held roles at MIT Sloan School of Management, The Wharton School, Bryn Mawr College, Occidental College, and she has currently found herself back at the University of Pennsylvania as the Associate Dean for Communications in Undergraduate Admissions. Megan holds a B.A. in Sociology from Dickinson College and a M.A. in Strategic Communications from American University.
Megan has applied her love of outdoors and dedication to serving others in positions such as camp counselor in Maine and Philadelphia Outward Bound School. She is also a proud National Outdoor Leadership School alumna.
“None of this would have been remotely possible without the strong foundation that Ursuline provided for me,” Megan shares. “I will forever be indebted to this school and this community.”
