2010 Alum and OTI Director Sarah Morris to Join NTIA as Senior Advisor

02 Mar 2022    

The Biden Administration has tapped veteran public interest advocate and 2010 UNL Space Cyber Telecom Alum, Sarah Morris, ’09, ’10 LL.M., to be the senior advisor at the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA), the President's top communications policy arm.

 In her new role, Morris, who has been director of New America's Open Technology Institute (OTI), will advise former NTIA head, Assistant Commerce Secretary Alan Davidson. Morris’ transition comes at a time when the NTIA is undertaking the historic opportunity to invest in bridging the digital divide.  

 For nearly 11 years, Morris worked on broadband access and adoption issues at OTI, including a landmark series of Cost of Connectivity studies. She led this work for several years before becoming director in 2019, and she now oversees the organization’s full portfolio of policy advocacy, research, and technical analysis.
