The Dean Arcangelo Cascieri Lectureship in the Humanities was established by the BAC Alumni Association in 1992 to honor the Dean on his 90th birthday. Each year, the BAC invites a distinguished speaker to present a public lecture on the many ways in which architecture and design interact with other disciplines and enrich our common life. It is thanks to the generosity of the BAC community who contributed so liberally and in so many ways that the Cascieri Lectureship Fund is made possible.
