Aging Studies Institute

ASI is a collaborative initiative of the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs and the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics. Its mission is to coordinate and promote aging-related research, training, and outreach at Syracuse University. With 40 faculty affiliates from more than a dozen departments, ASI provides multi-disciplinary research and education that is relevant to almost every academic discipline on campus.

ASI is home to the Center for Aging Policy Studies (CAPS). The ASI initiative promotes, supports, and disseminates interdisciplinary and policy-relevant research centered in the demography and economics of aging. Read more about ASI.

Research

Our dynamic network of over 40 faculty affiliates from more than 15 departments has made significant theoretical and empirical contributions to the field of aging. Research is based on the substantive interests of our faculty affiliates and ranges from product design to age-based public policy and later-life well-being. Read more about our research.

Education

ASI educates undergraduate students enrolled in the gerontology minor program, trains graduate students through courses and assistantships, and provides professional development to faculty via seminars, conferences, and summer workshops. Through ASI’s education and training programs, students and faculty are able to broaden their networks, build their skills sets, and advance their careers. Read more about education.
