UD in the News March 8-15

Four faculty published three pieces in The Conversation highlighting research and expertise on pregnancy discrimination, St. Patrick's Day and fake charities. Athletic Business published a piece by sports management expert Peter Titlebaum about Dayton's role in March Madness. Rob Durkle, dean of admission and financial aid, explained how to figure out college costs to CollegeXpress.

ECADF Ethiopian News & Views published philosophy professor Messay Kebede's editorial on ethnic politics in Ethiopia and Catholic Philly tapped Fr. Johann Roten's expertise on Mary, mother of Jesus.

In Ohio, The Columbus Dispatch and Hannah News Service ran on op-ed by former Ohio governor and UD distinguished research associate Bob Taft about pausing Ohio's death penalty. Political scientist Nancy Miller offered her thoughts to Spectrum News on how a gerrymandering case could affect Ohio's Congressional map.

Locally, media talked to faculty experts about police pursuits and recent store closings.
