The Resource Center on Aging
In October 1985, as part of its new Academic Geriatric Resource Program, the University of California at Berkeley officially opened the Resource Center on Aging. Under the leadership of Guy Micco, MD, Director, and Diane Driver, PhD, the Academic Coordinator, the Center is the coordinating mechanism for activities in aging on the UC Berkeley campus, and also serves as a clearinghouse for information on aging activities both on and off campus. It maintains affiliations with organizations in aging which provide resources for field research and current information on issues in aging in the community.
The Center also disseminates information on education, research, grants, publications, fellowships, internships, job opportunities and community resources in aging. We also maintain a small lending library available to students, faculty, staff, and the general public. Research in aging is not conducted through the Center, nor are degrees in gerontology granted through the Center.
The Center is home to the Academic Geriatric Resource Program (AGRP) and is located on campus in 535 University Hall which is on the corner of Oxford and University Aves in Berkeley. We are open from 12:30 - 4:30 PM Monday through Friday, or by appointment at other times, and can be reached by phone, (510) 643-6427, FAX, (510) 642-1197, or email Diane Driver
