Interdisciplinary Center on Aging

Who We Are

Established in 2009, the California State University, Chico (CSU, Chico) Interdisciplinary Center on Aging (ICOA) is conceptualized to fulfill the ever-growing aging needs of Northern California. Like climate change, the “graying” of America is another fundamental change in our world. With the assets and unique characteristics of CSU, Chico and its service region, the ICOA strives towards developing and demonstrating the best practices for meeting the challenges and maximizing the opportunities of an aging society.
