Iraqi Education Initiative & Flooding in Pakistan

The first students to be part of the Iraq Education Initiative at the University of Iowa have arrived on campus. Host Ben Kieffer speaks with Scott King, Assistant Dean of International Programs at University of Iowa, who will tell us more about the effort. We'll also have a conversation with Rauf Arif, a University of Iowa graduate student from Pakistan. As the tremendous flooding in Pakistan continues we'll talk about how Pakistanis in the U.S. are keeping tabs on what's happening back home and how they think the U.S. media is doing at covering the catastrophe.
