AGHE's policy priorities relate primarily to federal support for gerontological education, training, and research.
The Consultation Program assists community and four-year colleges and universities in adding gerontology to traditional curricula; developing or evaluating a gerontology program; developing a strategy for long-term planning; obtaining an objective assessment, external review, or validation of a proposed or existing program of gerontology instruction; and obtaining resource materials on adding, expanding, or evaluating gerontology instruction.
AGHE Executive Committee proposed definitions for gerontology and geriatrics.

Program of Merit
The AGHE Program Of Merit designation provides gerontology programs with an AGHE 'stamp of approval,' which can be used to verify program quality to administrators, students, and others.
This project addresses the educational needs of gerontology students and faculty, the human service needs of older adults, and the need for AGHE to expand its capacity to support service-learning initiatives in gerontology.
