Ongoing Lecture Programs

Cascieri Lectureship

The Dean Arcangelo Cascieri Lectureship in the Humanities was established by the BAC Alumni Association in 1992 on the Dean's 90th birthday to honor his outstanding and unparalleled contributions to the College. Each year, the BAC welcomes a speaker whose vision and philosophy are consistent with the spirit of humanism that the Dean exemplified.

Student Lecture Series

Each Spring and Fall Semester the student government sponsors a public lecture series that explores a pertinent theme in the practice of design. Guest speakers are carefully selected, and come from around the world to share their unique expertise. The Student Lecture Series is one of many ways that the BAC remains at the forefront of design education.

Hideo Sasaki Distinguished Visiting Critic Lecture

As part of the Hideo Sasaki Distinguished Video Critic Program, the BAC appointed a Distinguished Visiting Critic to conduct an advanced studio for those seeking to study with highly accomplished design practitioners. As part of this appointment, the Distinguished Visiting Critic presented a public lecture and exhibition at the College. The Hideo Sasaki Distinguished Visiting Critic Program was funded by The Hideo Sasaki Foundation, a trust established by Sasaki Associates, Inc. and family, friends, and colleagues of Hideo Sasaki.
