The Nebraska Governance and Technology (NGTC) Student Fellows are academics with an interdisciplinary inclination and who are interested in the challenges of changing technology. NGTC has assembled this group from academics at the University of Nebraska and is proud to announce the inaugural group.
The 2020-2021 Student Fellows include,
Khalid Al Washahi, College of Engineering
Jasmine Alexander, College of Journalism and Mass Communications
DeAndre' Augustus, College of Law
Brandi Bue, College of Journalism and Mass Communications
Mitchell Clark, College of Engineering
Alan Dugger, College of Law
Brett Emanuel, College of Law
Rafael Maschieri Bicudo, College of Journalism and Mass Communications
Alex Paun, College of Journalism and Mass Communications
Aryan Singh, College of Engineering
The goal of the Fellows program is to develop a cohort of academics who are able to understand technology challenges in interdisciplinary terms: engineers who can talk supply chain management and the role of public engagement in federal regulation; journalists who can speak fluently with entrepreneurs and critically interrogate lawyers advocating for preferred policies; entrepreneurs who can ground technologists in the reality of what can be and push lawyers past their focus on what can’t be; and other permutations involving the law, humanities, sciences, and other fields. During the 2020-2021 academic year Fellows’ primary obligation will be consistent engagement in a series of workshops and recordings aimed at developing this goal.
Applications for the Fellows program remain open and are reviewed on a rolling basis, though there are no current spots available for fall 2020. You can learn more here.
