The Life Course Scholars (LCS) program offers an interdisciplinary, cross-generational, multi-site learning experience for UCSD undergraduates that will transform their understanding of aging, health, learning & research, as well as connect them more deeply to the “people and places” of surrounding San Diego communities. The program will combine place-based, experiential, and traditional classroom-based learning methods, one-on-one matching with Elder Partners (EPs) living in the community, Learning Exchange Groups (LEGs) comprised of small clusters of EPs and LC Scholars, and both participatory planning and collaborative research activities, on and off campus. The program will culminate in LCS teams designing and implementing community-based Healthy Aging Projects (HAPs) under the guidance and mentorship of an interdisciplinary team of faculty collaborators, with support from interested EPs.
