A gift to the Institute for Integrative Aging helps support continued programming, activities, and academic opportunities for all ages.

The Institute for Integrative Aging at Saint Joseph’s College is an innovative program aimed at providing rural older adults access to a creative, age-friendly, learning environment. At the same time, we are creating a student body and workforce that is well-equipped to support a rapidly growing aging population through intergenerational collaboration and mentorship. Through educational courses, social & spiritual enrichment activities, fitness & wellness programming, and a forthcoming 55+ active adult residential community, we are building a rich ecosystem that supports bi-directional learning, intergenerational connectivity, and generates a ‘sense of community’, with the goal to combat social isolation and loneliness.
