CENTRE FOR RESEARCH ON AGING (engAGE)

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?'
