Welcome to the Center on Aging

MISSION

The Center on Aging unites people and resources at California State University in Bernardino to respond to the needs of a rapidly aging population in Southern California.

The mission of the Center on Aging is to become a leading advocate in the Inland Empire to enhance the quality of life of older adults. Our main purpose is to assist older adults to age independently and with dignity.

The Center on Aging is a university-wide, interdisciplinary unit sponsored by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at CSUSB. It attempts to enhance the well-being and quality of life of older adults by engaging community organizations in interdisciplinary and collaborative efforts in research, educational programs, and service to the community.

GOALS

The goals of the Center on Aging are trifold:

  1. Facilitate basic and applied community-based research to enhance the quality of life of older adults and their families in Southern California;
  2. Educate and train professionals on best practices for serving older adults;
  3. Advocate on behalf of older adults and their families.
