Friedman Center for Aging is the lead author of the study, “Age as a Factor in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiatives in Higher Education.” The study shows that most higher education DEI initiatives don’t give age much attention as a factor in designing their programs. The study is published in the Journal of Gerontological Social Work.
