Presented by the Sagamore Institute and the Confucius Institute in Indianapolis as part of CI-Indianapolis' 5th anniversary

Sagamore Institute's Africa portfolio highlights the increasingly critical role of private organizations and individuals in economic development and the building of civil society. Sagamore has taken an active role in this movement by helping to establish the ISOKO Institute, a free market think-tank promoting private enterprise in Africa.  Moreover, Sagamore Institute maintains a close relationship with Liberia.  In 2005 Sagamore Institute hosted then-Liberian presidential candidate Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as she discussed economic development in Liberia. In July 2011 Liberian Ambassador to the United States William V.S. Bull spoke at Sagamore about the role of the Liberian diaspora in Liberia’s development. Most recently Leymah Gbowee, 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, spoke at Sagamore in February of 2012.

The Confucius Institute in Indianapolis was established at IUPUI in 2007 through an agreement between The Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban) and IUPUI in partnership with Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU) in China. IUPUI is one of the great ventures in American higher education, bringing together the well-known strengths of Indiana University in the arts, music, humanities, and life sciences and the strengths of Purdue University in science and engineering. IUPUI has 22 schools with approximately 30,000 students. CI-Indianapolis is located in the very heart of the IUPUI campus in downtown Indianapolis.

We would like to take this opportunity to present our co-sponsors from Indiana University-Bloomington and Indiana University –Purdue University at Indianapolis:
