The Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (aka AGHE) is the international leader in advancing education on aging and is the only institutional membership organization devoted primarily to gerontology and geriatrics education since 1974. AGHE's mission is two-fold: (1) To advance gerontology and geriatrics education in academic institutions; and (2) To provide leadership and support of gerontology and geriatrics education faculty and students at education institutions.
AGHE and its members are strongly committed to the well-being of older adults. Together, AGHE and aging-studies programs in institutions of higher education strive to:
The official journal of AGHE
(1) prepare service delivery personnel who will work directly with older adults;
(2) train educators who specialize in the physical, psycho-social, and policy domains of aging;
(3) educate the society at large about the processes of aging and the implications of an aging society; and
(4) instruct older adults seeking to maximize their options in a complex and challenging age.
AGHE is committed to providing support to a broad national and international membership on very limited means. Your financial support is important in helping to sustain our current programs and growth. To this end, we have begun an exciting new initiative. A $100,000 Endowment Campaign is in progress that will provide long-term financial insurance for AGHE. You can become a part of this long-term commitment to continue to ensure quality gerontology and geriatrics education and training. We have an initial goal of $100,000. Contributors during this initial period, are designated as AGHE Endowment Campaign Founders. Click here to find details on how you can become an Endowment Founder.
AGHE seeks to improve the capacity of its member institutions to serve as advocates for gerontology education and research on their own campuses, in their communities and states. AGHE is the educational unit of The Gerontological Society of America.®
