What is the Gerontology Institute?

Ithaca College established the Gerontology Institute in 1992 to serve as a campus and community resource that promotes and supports research, curriculum development, community education, and community service activities.

Our mission is to provide high quality education to students and professionals, empowering them to positively impact the lives of older people.

We offer programming for the public, as well as training for professionals in health and aging services through a number of collaborative, internally- and grant-funded initiatives.

The Institute also administers the Ithaca College Aging Studies major and minor for undergraduates and the Longview Partnership. Our students benefit from experiential learning opportunities and a close knit group of faculty and staff who are passionate about the work they do.
