Partnerships in Aging Program (PiAP): Collaborating Across Generations
The Partnerships in Aging Program (PiAP) is a campus-wide program at The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. At PiAP we understand later life in the 21st century as a time for continued growth and invigoration. We want to challenge stereotypes that frame aging as an experience of diminishment and loss. By collaborating with organizations and institutions we nurture dialogue about the personal and societal meaning of having a long life, and advance civic engagement as a way to bring about a new kind of aging. PiAP provides expertise and resources to UNC faculty, students, and community partners seeking to reframe the aging experience, together.
