Sigma Phi Omega: The National Academic and Professional Society in Gerontology
About Sigma Phi Omega
- Sigma Phi Omega (SPO), the national academic honor and professional society in gerontology, was established in 1980 to recognize excellence of those who study gerontology and aging and the outstanding service of professionals who work with or on behalf of older persons. The formation of a society provides a much needed link between educators, practitioners, and administrators in various settings where older persons are served.
- Mission: To promote scholarship, professionalism, friendship and services to older persons and to advance the education of those individuals in aging related fields.
- SPO welcomes you to meet our members and share news reflecting excellence and outstanding service within our gerontology profession.
