Miami University Gerontology Alumni

Making a difference for nearly forty years!

Miami University’s gerontology academic programs date back to the 1970s. The Master of Gerontological Studies program was founded in 1977, the BA in Gerontology in 2000, the PhD in Social Gerontology in 2005 and the Master of Population and Social Gerontology in 2010. We now have nearly 500 gerontology alumni from those four programs, and an estimated 700+ alumni with the gerontology minor. Our alumni are out there making a difference around the world!

This page is devoted to our gerontology alumni. Here we will highlight your accomplishments, post alumni photos, invite you to connect with us online or at upcoming events, and make it easy to update your contact information and support current students.

If you are an alumni and want more information about how to connect, please contact Pamela Mayberry, MGS.
