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 relationships between the Center and local organizations
  2. Educate and train future gerontology professionals; and
  3. Conduct and disseminate high-impact gerontology research.
