Event Navigation

Donna Rapaccioli, Ph.D., dean of the Gabelli School of Business, invites you to join her for a conversation with Lidia Bastianich and Stephen Katsouros, S.J., founding dean and executive director of Arrupe College at Loyola University Chicago.

Lidia Bastianich is an Emmy Award-winning public television host, a best-selling cookbook author, a restaurateur, and owner of a flourishing food and entertainment enterprise. The conversation will touch upon a range of topics including Bastianich’s career trajectory and philanthropic priorities, notably her service on the Arrupe College Founding Board of Directors. Arrupe College is a two year college of Loyola University Chicago that ensures affordability while providing care for the whole person to a diverse population, many of whom are the first in their family to pursue higher education. Father Katsouros, a member of the Northeast Province of the Society of Jesus and former president of Loyola School in Manhattan, founded Arrupe College in 2015.

Autographed copies of both Father Katsouros’ new book, Come to Believe: How the Jesuits Are Reinventing Education Again, and Bastianich’s new cookbook, Celebrate Like an Italian: 220 Foolproof Recipes That Make Every Meal a Party, will be available for purchase.

If interested in attending please email Rose Marie at rreyes26@fordham.edu with your student id #, indicate if you are an undergraduate or graduate student, and expected date of graduation.
