UD in the news Dec. 4-11

Newsweek published an online story that focuses on the University community's collective success in coping with the early spike in cases to bring it down and keep it down through the rest of the semester. The article describes the trajectory of the campus and our efforts, including the importance of our partnerships, the broad-based internal planning efforts and especially the role of the students in coming together in community and as peers to encourage safe behavior.

Several local media also chronicled our plans for bringing back students for the spring semester. The Dayton Business Journal highlighted "How the pandemic helped UD diversify its supplier base." Dayton Daily News and Dayton Business Journal wrote about the Dayton Arcade securing yet another tenant. The Dayton Daily News memorialized the life of School of Business of Administration Dean John Mittelstaedt who passed away this week.

Computer scientist Tam Nguyen wrote a piece for The Conversation about neural networks. WVXU-FM (Cincinnati), WOSU-AM (Columbus, Ohio), the Dayton Daily News and Spectrum News stations in Ohio and New York reported on assistant psychology professor Julie Walsh-Messinger's research about the lingering affects of COVID-19.

Al Jazeera English interviewed law professor Thaddeus Hoffmeister about 46 states suing Facebook for violating antitrust law. ABC22/Fox45 in Dayton also interviewed Hoffmeister about stand your ground laws and police use of force.

Cultural anthropologist Miranda Hallett spoke to a Brazilian outlet about climate migration.

Political scientist Nancy Martorano Miller continued to provide election analysis for The Columbus Dispatch.
