The purpose of our programs is threefold:

1) To train qualified professionals to work in administrative, planning, service delivery and instructional and staff development positions in programs and services for elders at the national, state and local levels

2) To provide an opportunity for those studying in other disciplines, and whose work will encompass service to the aged, to integrate their own training with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the aging process and

3) To stimulate the design and execution of gerontological research across the multiple disciplines.
