The Conversation published a piece by Miranda Hallett and Theo Majka in the department of sociology, anthropology and social work about "The Benefits That Places Like Dayton, Ohio, Reap by Welcoming Immigrants." The Associated Press, Chicago Tribune and International Business Times also picked up the piece.

Constitutional law expert Erica Goldberg spoke to ABA Journal about a First Amendment issue between Oberlin College and a bakery. Janet Bednarek talked to international radio broadcaster Monocle to discuss the golden age of aviation.

Education Technology Insights is running Chief Information Officer Tom Skill's analysis of "The Coming Generation-Z Impact on Cybersecurity." First Bell, the daily newsletter of the American Society for Engineering Education, included an article that prominently features the expertise of Kelly Kissock, director of the Industrial Assessment Center.

Locally, the Dayton Daily News and WDTN-TV covered the Curran Place dedication, and all local outlets covered news of a $46.8 million Air Force contract. The Dayton Daily News sought the expertise of political scientist Christopher Devine about pay raises for city officials.
