Telecom and Information Policy Institute
University of Texas

Sharon Strover is the Philip G. Warner Regents Professor in Communication and former Chair of the Radio-TV-Film Department at the University of Texas. She teaches communications and telecommunications courses and directs the Telecommunications and Information Policy Institute. Her recent research projects examine (1) the individual and group use of so-called “second screens” including laptop computers, smart phones, and other devices - and how the industry is adjusting its content and distribution strategies to those uses; (2) policy responses to the digital divide, internationally as well as domestically; (3) the economic benefits of broadband, particularly in rural areas.

She also directs a Digital Media program as part of a broader collaboration effort between the University of Texas at Austin and the government of Portugal, a multi-year project that includes developing doctoral programs in digital media and sponsoring research in immersive technologies.

She has worked with several international, national and regional government agencies and nonprofits on communications policy issues, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service, U.S. Federal Communication Commission, the government of Portugal, the Benton Foundation, the Center for Rural Strategies, the European Union, The Appalachian Regional Commission, the Office of Technology Assessment, the Rural Policy Institute, the Ford Foundation, and the European Union. Dr Strover has published numerous articles in academic journals and is the author or co-editor of three books.
