Nicholas Eastman, associate professor of educational studies, has been named the new Pieper Chair of Servant Leadership at Ripon College.

The Suzanne and Richard Pieper Family Foundation supports the position at several Wisconsin colleges and universities to nurture future leaders in all sectors of society.

Also, Eastman presented at the conference “Makarios: Character and Virture in the Christian Tradition” in Rome, Italy, May 26-28. The bi-annual conference is a joint undertaking of the Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry at Australian Catholic University (ACU), the Human Flourishing Program at Harvard University, the Boston College Colloquy in Historical Theology (BCHT) and Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion.

The conference promotes research and discussion of the relationship between Christianity and human flourishing in historical and contemporary perspective, and across the humanities and social sciences. Eastman’s presentation was on the aesthetic theory of German philosopher Josef Pieper and its relationship to recent papal perspectives on the relationship between education, art and culture.
