About Professor Kuchinka

My name is Dr. Dan Kuchinka. I live in Minnesota, USA. I have obtained a BA in Speech Communication from St. Cloud State University; a MS in Communication Studies from Minnesota State University, Mankato; and a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology (Graduation with Distinction) from Capella University.

My career highlights include 15 years management/leadership experience with memorable moments as Senior Manager and then CEO at two different Chamber of Commerce organizations, and Operations Manager at a fortune 100 company (rank 54). I have also served in higher education in the classroom and online for approximately 8 years. My areas of expertise include organizational development, training, education, leadership, and spirituality in the workplace.

I am guided by my faith, love, and understanding of Jesus Christ and his teachings. I highly value my Judeo-Christian beliefs, which help me perform as a Professor, Scientist, Mentor, and Community Leader. My research interests include examining the relationship between spirituality, religiosity, and mental/physical health and performance in the workplace.
