As one of the first “age-friendly” universities in the country, UNE offeres unique ways for older adults to engage with us. One is the Legacy Scholars Program.
Founded on the belief that some of the best learning about aging happens when younger students and older scholars come together in shared study and personal exchange. UNE Legacy Scholars are adults, aged 55+ years, who support our faculty and students in conducting research on aging that is inclusive and focused on making a difference.
Once enrolled, Legacy Scholars become part of the UNE family and participate in various special opportunities: Special Classes, Sitting for a Life Story Interview, Topical Coffee & Conversations and invitations to university events.
Together, Legacy Scholars also form a community of persons interested in healthful aging, lifelong learning, and service to others.
