Incumbent to stay on as chair in religion and conflict

UWindsor alumnus John Cappucci (BA 2006) says he is thrilled to have accepted a further two-year appointment as Jarislowsky Chair in Religion and Conflict at Assumption University, effective September 1.

“I’m looking forward to continuing my work and grateful to both the Jarislowsky Foundation and Assumption University,” Dr. Cappucci says. “The courses and activities that we organized last year were very well-received by both the campus and community. We already have several engaging activities planned for the year, including a new course and guest speaker scheduled for October.”

Cappucci followed his UWindsor studies with a master’s degree from Queens University and a doctorate from Carleton University. His research interests include religion and politics, world religions, diasporas, and multicultural theory.

Launched in 2004, the Chair in Religion and Conflict was established at Assumption University following a $1-million donation from the Jarislowsky Foundation and a matching gift from the Basilian Fathers of Sandwich. Cappucci took on the position in 2017.
