The Georgia Gerontology Consortium

Gerontology Consortium ImageEstablished in 1995 via primary funding from a special grant from the University System of Georgia Board of Regents to The University of Georgia Institute of Gerontology, The Georgia Gerontology Consortium is an experimental program to enhance student and faculty training and development in gerontology throughout the State of Georgia. The purpose of this Consortium is to coordinate and deliver a comprehensive training and development package in gerontology for participating universities within the University System of Georgia. The Consortium forms partnerships among participating institutions and their faculty to share resources and expertise to enhance the quality of gerontological teaching, research, and outreach.

Under the auspices of The Georgia Gerontology Consortium, the Institute of Gerontology coordinates and administers four programs:
1. The Distance Learning Partnership in Gerontology
2. The Seed Grant Program
3. The Southeastern Regional Student Mentoring Conference on Gerontology & Geriatrics
4. The Faculty Instruction, Research, and Outreach Development Program
