Gerontology program designated ‘Program of Merit’ by AGHE
The Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE) Program of Merit (POM) review committee recently awarded the designation of AGHE Program of Merit to the Missouri State University gerontology program.
“Receiving this recertification is a great honor since it recognizes the historic and current quality of the gerontology program at Missouri State University,” said Dr. Bradley Fisher, professor of psychology and gerontology. “This is important for students who will be reassured they are getting an excellent education through the curriculum provided and for our community partners who will know that graduates are skilled and knowledgeable professionals ready to work to enhance the quality of lives of older adults.”
The AGHE POM review team noted several strengths of the program, including the diversity of course offerings, the faculty’s continuous support for students, both academically and professionally, the commitment of the gerontology students to community service and the activities of the Gerontology Club.
