Robert 'Bob' Galecke

A man of service and passion for UD.

Bob Galecke served the University of Dallas in a variety of leadership roles for over 20 years. Most notably, his positions at UD included interim president (twice), senior vice president and executive vice president. Among his many efforts to advance the university, Bob initiated the annual golf tournament. Because of his great service to the university and his passion for its mission, we changed the name of the University of Dallas Golf Tournament to the Galecke Open in 2016, shortly before Bob retired. We ask that you help us honor Bob by participating in and/or contributing to this year’s Galecke Open.
