The Bauccio Lecture Series was established with a $250,000 Defining Moment Campaign gift from University regent Fedele Bauccio, ’64, ’66, and his wife, Linda. The gift enables the University to stage a series of lectures with visiting entrepreneurs and visionaries from around the country. The series is sponsored by the Franz Center for Leadership, Entrepreneurship & Innovation. For more information, contact Peter Rachor, Franz Center, at 7782 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
