Education Objective

The objective of the Education component of the mission of The Gerontology Center is to increase the knowledge of faculty in aging research while fostering positive attitudes about aging.

The primary approaches through which this occurs are:

1) Encouraging attendance at the Seminar Series in Gerontological Research;

2) Training undergraduate and graduate students in how to assist in research laboratories to help them gain experience, learn
    advanced techniques, present at conferences, and help prepare them for productive careers;

3) Recommending the College's Academic Program - the Aging and Health Minor.
