About the MTSU Positive Aging Consortium

The MTSU Positive Aging Consortium was established in April 2019 and brings together faculty from numerous programs, departments, and colleges who have expertise and research interests in the area of aging and older adults.  Community partners were added to the Consortium membership in 2020.  The Consortium provides opportunities for partnership and collaborative research, education and service in support of positive aging. The purpose of the Positive Aging Consortium is to bring together participants from MTSU, community partners, and individuals who provide services to aging and older adults to focus on framing aging from a place of positivity rather than decline.
