Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Center for Social Gerontology’s website. This website is constructed to support the interests and needs of faculty, staff, students and community members who are interested in the older adult population in southeastern Georgia and elsewhere.

We hope you find this website helpful and thank you for your interest in the older adult population and those that support and serve them.

Assistant Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Center for Social Gerontology and to our team. We strive for transdisciplinary collaborations, which includes members from across the University and community stakeholders. As such, we would love for you to join us in our efforts to discuss, research, and better understand contemporary aging within varying contexts. If you would like to know more on ways you can be involved, please reach out for meeting times and information on other events.

Call2Care – A Phone Reassurance Project

Call2care was created to create meaningful intergenerational social relationships between older adults and students as a way of overcoming ageism and social isolation.

We are seeking older adults and Georgia Southern University students to participate bi-weekly, 20-minute phone conversations

Students are trained and complete a criminal background check.

For more information about Call2Care, please contact us at  or 912-478-8546.

The Call2Care is led by a team of Georgia Southern University Faculty and Staff.
