Catholic Dominican Presence is focus of “Caucus Up Close” TV segment

Director of Campus Ministry Colleen O’Brien and student Devin Lattu

Director of Campus Ministry Colleen O’Brien and student Devin Lattuga join Steve Adubato on “Caucus Up Close” to talk about the experiences the university provides to promote the Catholic Dominican heritage on campus.

Lattuga shares how being involved in campus ministry and community service helped him realize he wants to pursue a law career as an advocate for those in need. He talks about his work in planning Boxtown, a project in which students slept outside to raise awareness about homelessness. He was inspired after attending the Dominican Preaching Conference the year before.

O’Brien talks about the Caldwell Catholic Relief Services Club’s involvement in the Student Ambassadors Leaders Together summit in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., last July. O’Brien accompanied two students as they learned how to advocate policy change on international humanitarian issues such as global migration and hunger. O’Brien also discusses the successful on-campus Hunger Banquet, held last spring to raise awareness about hunger around the globe.
