National Catholic Reporter published a preview of Dominican University's upcoming "El Futuro is Here!" conference, August 3 - 5. The conference is being held to explore ways of understanding and appreciating the cultures of Latinx students and to encourage Catholic campus ministries to change their practices to better serve these students' unique needs.
