UD in the News Oct. 12-19

Political scientist Christopher Devine explained how partisanship runs deep in America - even among ‘independents’ - in The Conversation. CNN and NBC News were among the hundreds of outlets nationwide continuing to show Research Institute video about the damage drones can do to airplane wings. And The Washington Post, Education Dive, the National Jurist and International Jurist, quoted UD experts or mentioned UD programs.

Local media covered the Adele Center dedication and the groundbreaking of a new building on campus for The Dayton Foundation, the Dayton Development Coalition and the University of Dayton's Fitz Center for Leadership in Community. They also tapped faculty experts for their thoughts on the midterm election and Sears declaring bankruptcy.

The Dayton Daily News also featured the immersive experience students are getting by participating in the Dayton Ballet's production of "Dracula: Bloodlines."
