The Hartford Partnership Program in Aging Education (HPPAE) is a unique and exciting opportunity that is designed to enhance students’ direct practice and leadership skills in gerontology. Previously funded by the John A. Hartford Foundation Social Work Leadership Institute and the Health Foundation of Western and Central New York, the program equips social workers with the knowledge, skills, and competencies to improve care and well-being of older adults and their families. The UBSSW is one of 88 schools nationwide that have created training opportunities in competency-based gerontological social work.
