UD in the News Dec. 1-14

University of Dayton faculty expertise spread worldwide the first half of December via The Conversation, an international news outlet that features articles by academics, CTV in Canada,, Eyewire and the Detroit Free Press.

Shelley Inglis, executive director of the Human Rights Center, and Miranda Hallett, a Human Rights Center research fellow, made separate appearances on WVXU-FM's Cincinnati Edition to discuss UD's celebration of the 20th anniversary of its human rights studies program and immigration, respectively.

Dayton-area media featured the University's annual Christmas on Campus, a student engineering project at onMain, a fundraiser to help eliminate food insecurity and the solar arrays at Curran Place. They also tapped faculty expertise on law, gas prices, applying to college and politics.
