The Association of Religious Communities has held their annual Keep the Faith event, and they honored Dr. Christopher Kukk, the Director of the Center for Compassion, Creativity and Innovation. He is also a Professor of Political Science at Western Connecticut State University.
Kukk presented key findings from his recent book, “The Compassionate Achiever.”
Kukk organized the Dalai Lama's visit to the University in 2012. Following that visit, he worked with students to set up a lasting tribute to the event, and formed the Center. ARC Executive Director Rev. Phyllis Leopold says Dr. Kukk was recognized for his work in making the community and a more peaceful place.
