¡El Futuro Is Here! 2023

Advancing the Practice of Culturally Responsive Ministry in Higher Education
August 1-3, 2023

This conference has been generously underwritten by our donors and, as such, we are able to keep the registration costs reasonable:

Teams from an institution may register 0–5 participants at no cost.

  • This includes accommodations, meals and registration fees
  • Only cost to participants is travel to and from Dominican University

Additional team members (6+): $500 per participant

We encourage institutions serving undergraduate students to send thoughtfully constructed, small teams of 3–5 persons that will impact future practices on your campus. These could include campus ministers, faculty in theology and related disciplines, mission officers and/or administrators. In our efforts to build leadership and encourage young adults to be protagonists of the future of the academy and the Church, we ask that all teams include at least one and hopefully two student leaders.

Registration Process

STEP 1: One point of contact from your institution should complete this online interest form by April 30. This tells us that your institution is planning to be present. We ask that you estimate the number of students and faculty/staff/admin who will be attending (free up to five, then $500 each). Once this is submitted, you will receive a confirmation email that outlines next steps, including recommendations for assembling an effective team.

STEP 2: Submit names, roles, and contact information of individual participants to Debbie Dibbern by May 15. You will receive email reminders along the way.

STEP 3: Encourage all team members to complete the individual registration form by June 15. The link to this online form will be emailed directly to all participants.

We will do our best to communicate regularly throughout the process. If you have any questions about registration or logistics, please email Debbie Dibbern, administrative assistant for Division of Mission and Ministry, or call (708) 488-5234. 

Registration is now closed. To be added to a waitlist in case individual or group spots become available, please email Armando Guerrero Estrada.
