The Annual Kenneth C. Schraut Memorial Lecture

Department of Mathematics

University of Dayton

The Kenneth C. Schraut Memorial Lecture is an annual event at the University of Dayton. The lecture was established in 2000 so that noted mathematicians could give a talk to undergraduate students. This lecture is made possible entirely with the generous support of alumni donations in memory of Dr. Kenneth C. Schraut, who taught mathematics at the University of Dayton for many years.
