Patricia Dilley ’73


Patricia Dilley ’73 recently received the Rockefeller Foundation Innovation Award for her tireless work and innovative policy proposals to strengthen Social Security for vulnerable groups. “She has spent a lifetime—as a congressional staffer, a private practitioner, and an academic—immersed in Social Security and pensions,” Alicia Munnell, professor and chair in management science at Boston College says. “If anybody can design workable policy options to help vulnerable groups, she can.” A professor at the University of Florida’s Fredric G. Levin College of Law, Dilley has served on the United States House of Representatives Subcommittee on Social Security, the Committee on Ways and Means, and with the Social Security Administration. Her proposal “Restoring Old Age Income Security for Low Wage Workers” was recognized by the National Academy of Social Insurance as part of an initiative to generate social security options. She has also worked in private practice, taught tax law at the University of Washington School of Law, Leiden University in the Netherlands, and the Seattle University School of Law.
