Student Resources


Faculty advisors and course instructors serve as the primary resources for academic concerns and guidance as students progress through the Gerontology program.  Currently enrolled Gerontology students can identify the name of their faculty advisor by referencing the faculty advisor list posted on the bulletin board.  Students are expected to take the initiative to meet with their faculty advisors on a regular basis to address academic concerns.  Click the link to the Gerontology Student Orientation Power Point Presentation.

The School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement listservs will be an opportunity to stay up to date on current events and opportunities, important dates and reminders, and many other items related to your studies and career trajectories.  We encourage you to join the listserv in order to stay up to date on departmental happenings.

In order to provide efficient communication to our students, we have created four listservs (email distribution list): (for general information), (for jobs listings) (for internship listings) and (for PACE related events).

To subscribe to one of these listservs:

1      Send the following message to one, or all, of the listserv addresses above:


Be sure that no signature or ads are also in the body of the email.   A confirmation e-mail will be sent with instructions for completing the subscription process.

To send messages to one of the listservs: 

Note: The message will be delivered to all members of the list. You will receive a notification if the message is rejected or if it needs a moderator's approval.

1      Verify the List e-mail address on your Distribution List Subscriptions page, or in the e-mail you received when you subscribed to the list, i.e., <listname>

2      Use your e-mail client (i.e., OWA, Outlook, Mac Mail) to create a new message.

3      Enter the list e-mail address in the To: field, compose and then send the message.

To unsubscribe from one of the listservs:

  1. Email the word unsubscribe to the address of the listserv from which you want to unsubscribe. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the unsubscribing address. If you wish to unsubscribe an address other than the address you sent this request from, you may specify
