Ms. DelVecchio is a co-author of Designs for Learning: College and University Buildings by Robert A.M.

The College of Fellows, founded in 1952, is composed of members of the American Institute of Architects who are elevated to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Fellowship recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual and elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society.
