University of Dayton President Eric F. Spina, Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion Larry Burnley, and historians Ashleigh Lawrence-Sanders and Julius Amin have been at the forefront of the discussion of race in America by writing pieces for The Washington Post, The Conversation, The (Toledo) Blade, Dayton Daily News and Dayton Business Journal. Burnley also did interviews for local TV stations WHIO and WDTN.

Catholic publication Crux interviewed Neomi De Anda in religious studies about the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on DACA.

The Conversation highlighted physicist Ivan Sudakov's work examining the melting of sea ice with a video.

Poets & Quants for Undergrads featured students in the Davis Center for Portfolio Management for continuing their work during the pandemic.

Research Professor of Law Charles Russo was among the several faculty lending their expertise to explain the issues of the day with his op-ed "Freedoms, protecting against virus must be balanced" for the Dayton Daily News.
