Some West Conn students had a surprise guest sitting in on a class yesterday. Professor Chris Kukk says actor Richard Gere stopped by to talk about compassion. Kukk teaches a class in the Kathwari Honors Program and is Director of the Center for Compassion, Creativity and Innovation. This is finals week for West Conn students. Gere visited West Conn in 2012 and introduced talks by the Dalai Lama.
