Welcome to the Center for the Study of Aging
Our philosophy is that aging is a lifetime endeavor. It is not a condition to be treated or an event that happens at a particular age. Rather, it’s a process that unfolds over the course of one’s life. The Center’s multidisciplinary approach offers a comprehensive learning experience with a focus on engaging community partners that address health across the full lifespan.
Vision and Mission
Our mission is to advance the well-being of all people by assuring that the university, our communities, and our society prepare for the coming social revolution: the aging of the population. Such preparation requires research, education, and collaboration to:
- increase awareness of aging-related issues
- produce knowledge about how to improve the quality of life as we age
- foster expertise among faculty, policymakers, and community organizations
- promote expertise and careers in aging
