  • A Big ‘Thank You’ to USF for Hosting My Recent Visit
    by James Appleby
    February 14, 2020

    I recently had the privilege of visiting the University of South Florida (USF) campus in Tampa, Florida, which is the home institution of GSA President Dr. Kathy Hyer. It was a rewarding day that provided rich opportunities to discuss key GSA initiatives and to learn about the exciting work underway at USF. The faculty was intrigued to learn more about GSA’s work to advance the Reframing Aging Initiative and how this work intersects with the development of new scholarship. Following recent updates to the AMA and APA style guides, faculty who submit papers to journals following these formats will see new language recommendations (aligning with the Reframing Aging Initiative) for referring to older adults.

  • Fostering Development of Age-Inclusive Campuses

    I’d like to introduce you to GSA’s newest workgroup, the members of which are guiding the Society’s efforts to nurture more age-inclusive higher education environments. This topic has been a priority area since GSA’s Academy for Gerontology in Higher Education section endorsed the 10 principles of the Age-Friendly University (AFU) Global Network. We’ve been spreading the word nationwide ever since, supported by meeting presentations, publications, and webinars. The workgroup is chaired by Joann Montepare and its roster includes members Carrie Andreoletti, Elizabeth Bergman, Marilyn Gugliucci, Judy Howe, Nancy Morrow-Howell, Michelle Porter, John Schumacher, and Nina Silverstein. We welcomed everyone to GSA headquarters for a kickoff meeting in late January.
