Intergenerational Institute

Currently there are UIC faculty members and students from APSY that involved in research and community services in the discipline of intergenerational studies. The emphasis of this group is in research at intergenerational programming (e.g., designing programs to connect people of different generations for mutual benefits), and would like to have UIC facilities and resources accessible to them for different purposes.
