Center on Health, Aging, and Disability
A major initiative of the College is the development of the Center on Health, Aging and Disability.
Our Center provides leadership in interdisciplinary research, education, and outreach efforts that promote
health and wellness, healthy aging across the lifespan, healthy communities and optimal participation of
individuals with disabilities. Utilizing the campus's recognized excellence in science and technology, the
Center for Health, Aging, and Disability will impact the lives of individuals, families, and communities by
promoting health, self-sufficiency, economic independence and quality of life across the lifespan.
