Thank you for your interest in the Gerontology Institute. When I’m asked what makes us unique, I always say that we have a open, friendly and inclusive culture. I think this the foundation of our continued success. Our faculty and staff enjoy working with each other and we are so grateful for the many students that have joined the Gerontology family at Georgia State. Our tagline, is Leading the Way in an Aging Society. We do this in lots of ways.
First, we have a faculty and student body that is very engaged in research. Second, we offer signature experiences to our students that help them gain skills and access networks that support their ultimate transition from college to career. Third, we have a deep interest in people and communities that drives our attention to diversity, equity and inclusion across research, learning and in service of older adults and their care partners. Our many community partners inform our research agendas, enrich our classrooms and extend our reach.
Finally, our alumni remain a part of the Gerontology at Georgia State family. We have long-lasting and important connections to these alumni who are embedded throughout the aging network and are happy to support our students and our mission. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Gerontology at Georgia State family as an affiliate faculty, student, community partner or as a friend, please reach out. We look forward to hearing from you.
