Featured Initiatives


Age-Friendly University

A consolidated listing of the University's aging-focused researchers reaffirms the University's institutional commitment to improving the health and well-being of older adults and to better serve our aging population. Together, these efforts, along with the many initiatives being led by the Centre, have positioned the University of Calgary to be recognized as an Age-Friendly University.

Commemorating Mrs. P. June Rock

Mrs. June Rock, an accomplished leader whose career combined nursing, adult education, and healthcare administration, passed away in April 2019. To reflect June's valuable contributions and achievements, the Rock family and the Centre on Aging have established an endowed scholarship to support professional development for mature graduate students. Eligible students may apply through the University of Calgary open scholarship competition.
