Welcome to the Silberman Aging website! There are many of us at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College — faculty, students and staff — interested in aging and the many roles for social workers in this growing and important field. This website is an effort to make accessing relevant information easier for you and we hope you will find it useful.
The site is divided into several sections:
- A description of the Aging Field of Practice at Silberman School of Social Work
- A description of the active and dynamic student group, Student Alliance for an Aging Society (SAAS)
- There is a section linking with important organizations and webites in the field of aging, including the Council on Social Work Education’s Gero-Ed site, where you will find wonderful resources, the National Council on Aging, Gerontological Society of America, and many more
A section with links to relevant programs, lectures and activities in our area
- A section with links to interesting popular and academic articles
We want this site to be a rich collaboration, so if you know of other relevant events, articles, agencies, or organizations working with older adults and their families that you would like to see included in this website, please let us know. We are ALL Aging at Silberman!
