 Welcome to AGHE...

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:

           (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 the Educational Unit of The Gerontological Society of America.
