The Center on Aging facilitates the University of Minnesota's response to the many issues of the aging population.

People aged 65 and over are the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States and around the world. University of Minnesota gerontology researchers are working toward solutions that will improve the lives of older people in Minnesota and beyond.

Through our educational programs, we are preparing students for careers in aging to meet the demand for professionals with training in gerontology. Pursue your education in aging studies:
