Eboo Patel, Ph.D., will be in Indianapolis on October 21 and 22 to serve as the next Lake Institute on Faith & Giving Distinguished Visitor. He is the founder of Chicago's Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), an international organization that enables young people to bridge religious traditions to serve humanity. Patel's book, Acts of Faith, details his struggle for identity as an Indian Muslim in America and the path that led to the creation of IFYC. His visit will include candid conversations with area high school students hand-selected by their adult advisers; a presentation to college students interested in religious and philanthropic studies; a breakfast dialogue with interfaith clergy, lay leaders, and religion faculty; and a formal luncheon with business executives and civic leaders.
