Iowa and Kosovo have enjoyed decades of international cooperation and are well-established sister states. Building upon that foundation, the University of Iowa (UI), Iowa State University (ISU), and the Kosova Education Center (KEC) are collaborating on a $4.7 million USAID-funded cooperative agreement (the Activity) to develop private sector partnerships that will strengthen higher education.

In the opening segment, WorldCanvass guests from Iowa and Kosovo will discuss how, through the Activity, they are working to strengthen partnerships between the private sector and academic institutions, and how they are supporting the development of market-oriented and experiential learning approaches in both the information and communication technology and agriculture sectors in Kosovo.

The program concludes with a celebration of UI Global Student Awardees Katherine Lyu and Amira Nash, whose extraordinary commitment to international education has enriched both the UI campus and Iowa's global reputation.

WorldCanvass is a production of International Programs. Programs are recorded as audio podcasts and are available on iTunes, the Public Radio Exchange (PRX), and the WorldCanvass website
