Capps Conversations

Inaugurated in the fall 2012, the Capps Conversations feature distinguished guests moderating seminar-style discussions with a representative group of and local civic, business, and political leaders along with faculty and students.  They afford university and community members the opportunity to explore timely issues of critical importance to our city, state, and nation.  We also try to include as participants those who have indicated to us that certain topics might be appropriate for a Capps Conversation.
