Director of Gerontology
Jennifer Margrett, an associate professor in human development and family studies and director of the gerontology program, has been named the 2018 Rossmann Manatt Scholar. The award recognizes exceptional creativity and productivity in scholarship, teaching, and service, with great promise for continuing achievements.
Margrett will use the monetary award to advance research and teaching on aging and technologies that enhance health, functioning, and well-being among older adults. The grant will enable Margrett to develop an intensive design project competition to bring together students and faculty to learn and create together. The money will also support undergraduate and graduate research assistants’ work on technology applications, and allow Margrett to participate in the 2019 Venture Well conference.
Established in 2006, the Rossmann Manatt Faculty Development Award supports tenured faculty members through an endowed gift from Jack and Marilyn Rossmann and Charles and Kathleen Manatt.
