What students and faculty say about the Graduate Focus on Aging Concentration
“It is very exciting that my university transcript will officially recognize my master’s-related work in aging through the Graduate Focus on Aging Concentration. This extra credential should help make me more competitive when looking for a job in an aging related field upon graduation.”
- Megan Campbell, graduate student and co-lead for the Students Targeting Aging Research (STAR) group
“This opportunity for students aligns with the fact that the University of Manitoba has endorsed the Age-friendly University principles as developed by Dublin City University, making us the first university in Canada to do so. Amongst other principles, the new concentration will go a long way to increase the understanding of students of the longevity dividend and the increasing complexity and richness that aging brings to our society."
- Dr. Michelle Porter, director of the Centre on Aging
