CAPS school visits KU CDR

Friday, February 17, 2012

CAPS (Center for Advanced Professional Skills) located in Blue Valley MO, recently visited the CDR. Represented by students, Administrators and faculty, CAPS made a presentation to KU administrators and faculty about their program and the desire to have more students go on to attend KU. CAPS is a truly unique high school who’s students “must acquire cutting-edge skills to be successful in the “Innovation Generation.” CAPS represents the collaboration of education, business and community, providing students with a unique, immersive experience, resulting in highly skilled, adaptable, global innovators and leaders.” Mary Ryan, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs | KU Edwards Campus and Gregory Thomas, Design and CDR Director facilitated the meeting for Provost Vitter and representatives of the various schools/departments at KU. It is the hope that some collaboration with CAPS and student acceptance to KU will be in the near future.
