Dr. Dan Fitzpatrick is a Research and Assessment Specialist at the University of Michigan.
Alongside Dr. Dan Fitzpatrick and Prof. Christopher Marsicano, Dr. Fitzpatric is using SLLI’s proprietary datasets to expand upon prior research into income-driven repayment. Specifically, this team will examine the traits of students likely to participate in IDR, taking into account recent policy reforms, and examine what financial behaviors and situations IDR enrollment influences in turn. As policymakers and regulators work to address the disconnect between the protections offered under federal law and the reality in borrower outcomes, this research sheds new light on how efforts can better assist America’s most vulnerable borrowers.
