A WorldCanvass program, broadcast on December 7 and produced by UI International Programs, featured "What Is Globalization and How Does It Affect the World Economy."  The show examined what implications globalization has for the U.S., Iowa, and for individuals.

A portion of the program showcased an interview with Engineering dean Alec Scranton and Black & Veatch Energy president and CEO Dean Oskvig, who also is a member of the college's Distinguished Engineering Alumni Academy.  Much of the interview was devoted to showcasing the many ways in which the UI prepares students for 21st century careers.
