Mission and Goals

The Center on Aging at CSUSB is a university-wide interdisciplinary unit sponsored by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. It was created in order to unite people and resources at CSUSB to better respond to the needs of a rapidly aging population in the Inland Empire.

The goals of the Center on Aging are:

  1. Build strategic and lasting relationships between CSUSB, community-based organizations, and local governments in order to increase the quality of life for local older adults;
  2. Educate and train future professionals on the best practices for serving an aging population; and
  3. Conduct and disseminate world-class gerontology research.
