Welcome to the website of the UMaine Center on Aging (UMCoA) at the University of Maine. Established in the winter of 2001-2002, we are a multi-disciplinary center within the University of Maine System devoted to aging-related education and training, research and evaluation, and community service and consultation. UMCoA’s base of operations is at the University of Maine System’s flagship campus. Our main offices are in the city of Bangor with staff outposted in several locations throughout the state. The Center is proud to be affiliated with the School of Social Work and the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture. We are also a designated research unit at the University of Maine administered through the Office of the Vice President for Research.

UMCoA is always buzzing with activity, but nowadays, it is happening remotely in good part because of the pandemic. Staff and students are very much situated throughout the state…. continue.
