Prof. Pius Adesanmi, 1972–2019

Carnegie Corporation of New York joins in mourning the loss of Pius Adesanmi, Nigerian-born Canadian academic, who died on March 10, one of the 157 victims in the Ethiopian Airlines crash. Prof. Adesanmi was a grant recipient of the Corporation’s Higher Education and Research in Africa program, which advances diaspora linkages between North American and African universities. Prof. Adesanmi’s gifts and accomplishments — his much-loved personality, his dedication to advancing African scholarship and emerging academics, and his advocacy across sectors and continents — seem all but irreplaceable. He will be deeply and widely missed. The Corporation extends its sincerest sympathies to Prof. Adesanmi’s family, friends, and colleagues. May he rest in peace.
