The mission of the Center on Aging at the University of Vermont is to forge an ongoing collaboration among faculty, students, staff and programs within the University of Vermont, Fletcher Allen Health Care, and the Vermont community to promote a sense of well being and a high quality of life for older adults.

The Center seeks to engage interested parties who wish to partner in the development and execution of programs that facilitate the health and welfare of older adults. The cornerstones of the Center are:

  • To coordinate and support collaborative gerontological and geriatric research on the campus of the University of Vermont
  • To provide educational opportunities in gerontology and geriatrics to students, staff, faculty, the lay community, and health care and human service providers throughout the state and region
  • To translate research outcomes and educational activities into policy and excellent practice across the medical and human service landscape of the community that we serve
