This directory, designed to inform educators, professionals, and students of the nature and location of gerontology-related courses, degree programs, research programs, educational services, and training programs, contains information on the gerontological activities of 1,275 colleges and universities in the United States. (Data were collected between January and July of 1976, using a survey instrument.) It is arranged alphabetically by State, with college and university entries also listed alphabetically under each State. The District of Columbia, the Canal Zone, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands are also included. Each entry includes the name of the institution, institutional level, geographical location, contact person, and information on the specific type of institutional activity concerned with gerontology. The information on institutional activity is listed according to the following 12 categories, which are described in the directory key: I--Educational opportunities, etc., offered to older adults, II--gerontology courses normally offered in a 2-year period to undergraduate or graduate students, III--other courses which include content on aging, IV--degree programs with important gerontological or geriatric components, V--developments underway on aging, VI--financial aid, VII--short-term training, VIII--research and development projects in progress or planned, IX--consortia, X--programs or services available to part-time students, and XI--other comments.
