GERONTOLOGY CLUB AND HONOR SOCIETY
Gerontology Club (chartered Fall 2010)
The Gerontology Club's mission is to bridge the gap between UNC students and the aging population in our local community. With the use of resources on the UNC campus as well as in the community, we hope to give students the opportunity to volunteer, learn more about Gerontology from professionals in the field and, most importantly, better the community.
In June 2010, we reactivated the alpha chapter of Sigma Phi Omega (SPO), the Gerontological Honor Society. According to the organization's website, SPO seeks to promote scholarship, professionalism, friendship, and services to older persons, and to recognize exemplary attainment in gerontology/aging studies and related fields.
