The mission of the Middle Georgia Regional Aging Center of Excellence is to improve the quality of life for older adults in Middle Georgia through collaborative efforts in traditional academic, professional education, translational research and community outreach.

Institutionally, it will:

  • focus internal resources toward opportunities in the field;
  • promote collaboration with regional business, industry and public services (such as in community-based research, consulting, internships, continuing education, and training);
  • serve as a platform to move MGA forward in the areas of research, grant acquisition, funding from business and industry, and research infrastructure and support; and
  • provide opportunities for student involvement in undergraduate research and community service.

In the community, it will:

  • provide a centralized location (via the web page) for senior services information; and
  • create a resource for aging related businesses and agencies to access knowledge and human capital
