UNO has been selected to participate in a study, "Taking the Pulse of Age-Friendliness in Higher Education in the US Today."
Funded by the Retirement Research Foundation for Aging, this study is a collaboration of 31 universities aimed at furthering an age-friendly university (AFU) environment. To this end, we have been asked to participate in a national survey of age-friendliness across campuses in the US using the newly developed AFU Inventory and Campus Climate Survey (ICCS).
You are invited to participate in the online survey portion of the ICCS using this link: https://tinyurl.com/UNOClimateSurvey
This survey explores perceptions of faculty, students, and staff with respect to various age-friendly principles. All survey responses are anonymous and group summary data will be the focus of analysis.
The survey results will not only help UNO identify its age-friendly assets and gaps but will also help to refine what age-friendliness means in higher education and how we can broaden and deepen our efforts.
If you have questions or concerns about this study, please contact the researchers Julie Boron, Ph.D., or Lyn Holley, Ph.D., at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
