``We envision a San Diego State University Center for Excellence in Aging & Longevity.``
Facing the Challenge
The BIG IDEA Challenge at SDSU in 2020 was the catalyst for envisioning an age friendly university and Center for Excellence in Aging & Longevity. Initial steps include coordinating a dynamic team of individuals dedicated to advancing the field of aging and improving the aging experience.
Older Adults are the fastest growing segment of our population. Education, services, systems, and communities need to adjust to meet the changing needs of an aging society.
The Center for Excellence in Aging & Longevity will focus on:
- Workforce: develop and implement training and opportunities for AND by older adults, their family caregivers, aging sector, and general economy
- Longevity: creating/finding purpose in retirement, and re-engage SDSU alumni
- Age-Friendly: develop knowledge and standing within SDSU and the San Diego Region
- Research & Policy: Focus on individual, family, and community to address equity, quality of life, and the health and wellbeing of older adults.
In The End
Social Policy Institute endeavors to create a comprehensive, age-friendly university complete with a Center for Excellence in Aging & Longevity.
