Brief Summary of ProposalThe purpose of the proposed UA/CSU joint doctoral program in Adult Development and Aging is to train researchers who (a) understand cognitive and behavioral functioning in adulthood and aging, (b) will convey existing knowledge through teaching and generate new knowledge through empirical investigation and analysis, and (c) will interface with their communities to address relevant issues of pressing social importance. Upon completion of the program, students will be able to conduct research in the cognitive, motor, perceptual, and social functioning of adults in a variety of basic research and treatment settings that serve the aged. Graduates from the program will be competitive for academic teaching and research positions at 4-year and 2-year institutions of higher education and as researchers in applied health, rehabilitative, and aging facilities as well as in research institutes. The proposed program is intended to reorganize an existing Ph.D. program at the University of Akron in Applied Cognitive Aging. Thus, it is a reorganized program and not a new degree program. Also, this program revision is designed to be a joint doctoral program between The University of Akron and Cleveland State University in line with Ohio Board of Regents request for greater inter-university collaboration.
