Our University-Wide Mission

Located within the Mailman School of Public Health, the Butler Columbia Aging Center works beyond the School to integrate and catalyze interdisciplinary science and education throughout Columbia University across three campuses. The Center serves as the university’s central hub to provide knowledge for transitions to successfully aging societies. 

Our Programs

Focused on creating full health spans for individuals and populations and successfully aging societies, our four primary program areas are: Thriving Aging Societies: Social Engagement and Societal Infrastructure; The Science of Health; Biosocial Aging and Health Equity; and Global Health and Aging.
