INSTITUTE HISTORY



T

Woman

he Institute of Gerontology was established in the late 1960s. It was initially funded by the Administration on Aging of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare (now the Department of Health and Human Services) to serve as the multi-disciplinary center for research, teaching, and service in aging at the University of Albany. By the late 1970s, the Institute was granted official status as an organized research unit within the university. From 1981 to 1997, in recognition of the support received from Rhoda and Stan Ringel, the Institute was called the Ringel Institute of Gerontology. The Institute includes two centers, the Center for Research, and the Center for Excellence in Aging Services.
