UD in the News April 12-19

Media in the U.K., Canada and Ethiopia as well as prominent U.S. media outlets USA Today and National Catholic Reporter highlighted faculty research and expertise on topics that included the Presidential Medal of Freedom, drones, the Mueller report and others.

Locally, Spanish language outlet La Vanguardia wrote about health and sport science professor Peter Titlebaum's 600-mile Ride 4 Freedom Legacy Tour from the Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati to the Freedom Rides Museum in Montgomery, Alabama. The tour is to honor the mission of the museums so future generations can learn from the past.

The Dayton Business Journal wrote about the winner of the Flyer PItch business plan competition. The Dayton Daily News talked to Jason Eckert, director of career services, about the job outlook for college grads and marketing expert Riley Dugan about grocers becoming more sustainable in a time of increasing competition. WDTN-TV and ABC22/Fox45 talked to law professor Thaddeus Hoffmeister about the Mueller report.
