Student Loan Conference Co-sponsorship
11/1/2013 - 06/30/2014
The W.E. Upjohn Institute, the Spencer Foundation, and the Education Policy Initiative of the Ford School at the University of Michigan co-sponsored a conference and subsequent book on student loans and growing debt burdens held at the University of Michigan on October 24-26, 2013. The goals of the conference and book were twofold. One purpose was to summarize available data on student loans and to synthesize what has been learned by researchers about the impact of student loans on student higher educational experiences and employment –related outcomes. The second purpose was to consider the details of current public policies that affect loan terms, repayments, and defaults, and to elicit potential policy improvements.
