2019 Summit of Ohio Latinx Conference 
Pueblo Unido: Strength in Community
When: April 12-14, 2019
Where: Denison University, Granville, OH

You are invited to the 3rd annual Summit of Ohio Latinx (SOL)! The summit was born in 2015 at Denison University when Latinx students, staff, faculty, and allies began to raise questions about the growing Latinx student population at predominantly white institutions in the Midwest. How can we better mentor and equip this population? What issues are they facing on and off campus that we should be aware of? How is their experience on campus impacting their decisions and the choices they make after college? As a result of these conversations, a committee of passionate individuals was formed. They created SOL in hopes of inviting other institutions to unite and discuss ways to learn from each other and make a positive change for future Latinx students.
