UD in the News Feb. 3-9

'Diverse Issues in Higher Education' highlighted our new executive director of the Office Multicultural Affairs, 'Fortune' ran commentary from law professor Thaddeus Hoffmeister and law student Jessica Bernard; and leading Catholic magazine 'America' tapped Bill Portier, Mary Ann Spearin Chair of Catholic Theology, to discuss challenges for Catholic ministry in Appalachia.

Several outlets nationwide picked up a Salt Lake City Deseret News story about a book — Lead with Balance: How to Master Work-Life Balance in an Imbalanced Culture — and research by Donnie Hutchinson in the School of Business Administration's management and marketing department.

History professor Julius Amin, a frequent op-ed contributor, wrote "Trump’s insult is fed by deep ignorance about Africa among Americans" for Pambazuka News, an outlet for analysis and debate on freedom and social justice through the voices of the people of the "global south."

Local and regional media highlighted our marketing, research, legal, human rights and political science expertise.
