Help address the complex needs of an aging population and train future generations of researchers and practitioners to do the same.

Who we are

As community-engaged scholars, we emphasize agency, social participation, and inclusion of older adults in the study of the aging process.

engAGE facilitates research in four areas:

  • Culture, Creativity and Aging;
  • Community, Care and Connectivity;
  • Health, Wellbeing and the Lifecourse;
  • Politics, Policy and the Economics of Aging.
Together we seek to answer questions like the following:
Q: 'What are the cultural experiences of older people and how is engagement with the arts and humanities important in later life?'
Q: 'How can care be reimagined to emphasize the agency of older people and foster better social inclusion and sense of belonging?'
Q: 'How do people remain engaged in policy development and public life as they age?'
