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