Our Mission

The Center on Aging has a 40 year history at the University of Utah. Beginning with its origination in 1972, the Center on Aging has provided educational and research programs in gerontology at the University of Utah. It has sponsored undergraduate and graduate gerontology certificate programs as well as a Masters degree program in Gerontology. In addition to its strengths in gerontology education programs, it is recognized for a well-established research program focused on bereavement, coping with loss of a spouse and caregiving. In June 2004 its name was changed from the Gerontology Center to reflect a desire to become more comprehensive and expand the scope of its service and research activities.
