Distinguished Speaker Series

Since 1999, the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute has brought to campus over 50 Distinguished Speakers and visiting scholars, who have spoken to large campus and public audiences as well as interacted more closely with IC students in aging studies and other disciplines. These talks, scheduled once or twice each academic year, are free and open to the public, part of the Gerontology Institute’s commitment to keep the College and the central and southern New York region informed of issues important to elders and professionals who work with and for them.

Past speakers have focused on mindfulness and elder care, changes in governmental policy and programs for older persons, health care and minorities, caregiving, spirituality and aging, and a wide range of other issues. If you know of a notable expert or scholar who should be considered for this series, please send your suggestions and your contact information to aging@ithaca.edu or (607) 274-1965.
