Nebraska Governance and Technology Center

The Nebraska Governance and Technology Center studies the ever-changing relationship between law and technology. 

The Center is housed in the College of Law, but we are an interdisciplinary team of faculty, students, and researchers across the University of Nebraska, engaging in research with the Colleges of Business, Engineering, and Journalism and Mass Communications.

Faculty Fellows Program

The fellows are academics with an interdisciplinary inclination who are interested in the challenges of changing technology and are drawn from across the university. The program also includes a smaller number of visiting fellows from other institutions.

Student Fellows Program

Similar to the Faculty Fellows program, the goal of the NGTC’s Student Fellows initiative is to familiarize students with the nuances of working with professionals from other academic backgrounds, incorporating their diverse perspectives and vocabularies in order to better inform their own work.

Rural Digital Divide

The rural digital divide remains one of our critical focus areas. Learn more about our workshops, roundtables, and research on closing the divide.

General Calls for Research Support

NGTC seeks original and innovative research proposals at all times. We encourage researchers, who believe their research interests may intersect with the governance of technology to reach out.
