The Chesley Center on Aging

The Chesley Center on Aging serves as the hub for aging-related resources and research on the Minnesota State Mankato campus as well as the portal for collaborations with community agencies and institutions. The Center provides education and applied research in southern Minnesota, and works collaboratively with community partners in the region’s aging network. The Center works collaboratively with aging-related programs and organizations throughout the region.

Through its annual Chesley Lecture, professional conferences, educational events and other activities, the Center serves as a bridge between the University and the community on aging-related issues.


Identifying innovative research that is applicable to non-academic audiences is a central focus of the Chesley Center on Aging.


The work of the Chesley Center on Aging would not be possible without the support of people throughout the Community who share our dedication to improving the aging experience throughout the region. Donate here, or call 1-800-662-2705 to find out how to be involved.
