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

A few examples:

The Institute also administers the Ithaca College Aging Studies major and minor for undergraduates and manages the Ithaca College/Longview Partnership now in its 20th year. Enrolled students benefit from experiential learning opportunities and a close knit group of faculty and staff who are passionate about the work they do.
