Dr. Daniel A. Collier is an Assistant Professor of Higher and Adult Education in the Department of Leadership at the University of Memphis. Dan is also a research fellow for Davidson College’s The College Crisis Initiative (C2i) and the UCI Law School at the University of California – Irvine via SLLI.


Alongside Dan Fitzpatrick and Prof. Christopher Marsicano, Dr. Collier 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.
