Description

The Centre on Aging at the University of Victoria is a multidisciplinary research centre established in 1992. Our mandate is to promote and conduct basic and applied research throughout the lifespan.

Research is conducted in partnership with seniors, their families, organizations, health care providers, and the government.

Aims


Centre on Aging's Mandate

The Centre on Aging is a multidisciplinary university research centre established to advance knowledge in the field of aging in order to assist seniors, their families, those working with seniors, health-care providers and the government in meeting the challenges and potentials of an aging society. In order to meet this goal, the Centre has as its general objectives:

(1) To add to the body of knowledge in aging by conducting, stimulating and encouraging rigorous basic and applied research, as indicated by scholarly publications and research undertakings.

(2) To provide a focus, impetus and direction to the university's (and the region's) activities in the area of aging, as reflected in research initiatives, representation at university, government and community events; and response to requests from within and outside of the University.

(3) To disseminate knowledge on aging through publications, presentations at professional meetings, seminars and lectures, and participation on various committees and working groups.

(4) To facilitate collaboration and to stimulate communication among scholars, practitioners, government officials and older adults. This will be accomplished through collaborative research proposals, presentations, and through informal and formal consultation with these sectors.

(5) To promote and facilitate both graduate and undergraduate training within the area of aging. In order to do this, the Centre will compile an Annual Report and a biannual Course Outline of Programs and Courses on Aging, convene graduate students studying aging, offer opportunities for students to work on research projects in aging and support the hiring of faculty experts in aging for teaching in the area.
