"Global Alert" is a student-reported and -produced radio program that airs on WIUP-FM (90.1) every other Sunday morning during academic semesters at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. The program is sponsored by the IUP chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. 

The program focuses on global issues that have a community impact in Indiana County, Pennsylvania. The organizing principle of "Global Alert" is "think global and act local."

Fall 2009 programs have focused on:

n  Sept. 27, Oct. 11: political and environmental controversy surrounding the White's Woods recreational forest in White Township

n  Nov. 1: a proposed $5-per-student-per-semestter "green fee" proposed for the IUP campus by a student environmental group

n  Nov. 15:  the natural-gas-drilling boom associated with the Marcellus shale formation underlying Indiana County

n  Dec. 6: changing war policy on U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, featuring IUP political science professor Gawdat Bahgat, Ph.D.
