About the Lelon Capps Lecture Series Fund
The purpose of the Lelon Capps Lecture Series Fund, honoring Professor Capps (retired), is to bring nationally recognized speakers in education to KU. Professor Capps began his career at The University of Kansas School of Education in 1962 providing 44 years of service. His teaching and scholarship focused on elementary mathematics education. Capps authored a K-6 mathematics textbook series published by Houghton Mifflin that was used by 70% of the schools in the U.S. For many years he provided professional development for teachers of elementary mathematics within the U.S. and many international locations. While at KU, Capps served as director of elementary education, assistant dean and associate dean for the School of Education. He continues to support KU School of Education students through the Mathematics Education Scholarship.
The Lelon Capps Lecture Series is supported by a fund established through KU Endowment and is hosted by the Department of Curriculum & Teaching, with support from the School of Education and Department of Mathematics. Donations from individuals interested in providing a gift to support this lecture series are welcome to do so through the KU Endowment Association web page here.
