The Pennsylvania Department of Aging (PDA) was recently joined by students and faculty from West Chester University (WCU) and Widener University along with older adults to announce the expansion of the department’s Intergenerational University Connections program.

First launched as a pilot at Slippery Rock University (SRU) in the fall of 2020, the Intergenerational University Connections program offers students real world experience by completing service-learning projects that include engaging with older adults. WCU and Widener University, along with Penn State Harrisburg, have joined the program for the 2021 fall semester.
