Bolton, Christopher R.; Sullivan, Kathleen Ryan
This paper, based on a study of 169 institutions and 397 faculty, reports the findings of a national survey of institutions offering credit instruction in gerontology. The survey sought to identify the most pertinent administrative and procedural characteristics of gerontology education programs and, in addition, sought to describe the training, background, and accomplishments of the faculty associated with these programs. The data derived from this study has been archived within the University of Nebraska Computer Network for access by researchers and program developers interested in studying the data files in detail.
