UD in the news May 30-June 5

High-profile national and international outlets sought law professor Thaddeus Hoffmeister's expertise for stories about the George Floyd case and nationwide protests. Outlets include CTV in Canada, Al Jazeera English, Reuters, Christian Science Monitor and The Hill.

Bob Brecha, a professor in the physics department and renewable and clean energy master's program who is on leave from the University under a European Union Marie Curie Fellowship, was a co-author on the Conversation piece "How West Africa can expand power supply and meet climate goals."

Political scientist Nancy Miller talked to The Columbus Dispatch about voter fraud; ProPublica picked up her quote.

Locally, faculty offered their insight on the demonstrations against George Floyd's death and how UD is helping combat human trafficking during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Dayton Daily News and all three TV stations reported on UD's tentative plans to welcome students back in the fall.
