FIT Remembers

FIT notes the passing of two faculty members, each with more than three decades of service to the college: Professor Emeritus Julius “Julie” Panero, former chair of the Interior Design Department, died June 6. He taught at FIT from 1959 to 1994 and was instrumental in the founding of the BFA program. Jack Barschi, professor of English and Speech and former chair of the department, died August 25. He began teaching at FIT in 1974 and became full time in 1980.
