The Center for Accessibility and Safety for an Aging Population (ASAP Center) - The Center for Accessibility and Safety for an Aging Population (ASAP Center) is a multidisciplinary collaboration organized to conduct research in the primary area of transportation engineering, as well as performing educational and outreach programs. With motivation from Florida's large number of senior residents, the reported relatively high involvement of seniors in traffic crashes nationwide, and their special needs for transportation, the theme of the center is to provide safe and accessible transportation to the aging population.
The Center for the Study and Promotion of Communities, Families, and Children - The Center for the Study and Promotion of Communities, Families, and Children was created by the Stoops Family Foundation, Inc. to generate and sustain transformational knowledge development for effective policies, services, and usable research for the promotion of communities, families, and the children of Florida, the nation, and across the globe. The Center is overseen by its Advisory Council serving as a voluntary advisory and support group that assists the Center’s mission. The council works directly with the Dean of the FSU College of Social Work, the Center’s Executive Director, and the College of Social Work’s Director of Development. The Advisory Council will promote the general and financial welfare of the Center by establishing beneficial relationships and networks between FSU alumni, faculty, staff, students, friends, and the community.
The Information Institute - The mission of the Institute is to develop and implement applied research and policy studies that improve the quality, effectiveness, and productivity of individuals and organizations' use and management of information resources and services. The Institute is especially interested in the social and behavioral aspects regarding access to, the use of, and management of information and information technology
The Institute for Successful Longevity - The Institute for Successful Longevity conducts research into how to live longer, stay active and be fully engaged in life. The institute takes a multidisciplinary approach to better explore the complexities of life as an older individual. Over the last century Americans witnessed tremendous gains in longevity, but successful longevity is more than living to a great, old age. It is about living well as we grow older. Living well means many things, so we draw on the talents of researchers in many fields across the Florida State University campus to look at health, cognition, recreation, mobility, financial security and other concerns.
The John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government - The mission of the John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government is to enhance the capacity of Florida governments to effectively serve their communities through education and training, technical assistance and applied research, and public service. The Institute adheres to a set of core values including Commitment, Integrity, Quality, Learning and Balance. The Institute was created by the Florida Legislature in 1981. We fulfill our statewide mission through a consortium of six affiliate program offices located at the Florida State University, the University of Florida, the University of South Florida, the University of Central Florida, Florida Atlantic University, and Florida Gulf Coast University. The Executive Office is located at Florida State University.
The Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy - We are witnessing an unprecedented trend in human history – the rapid aging of the world’s population. The statistics are familiar. For example, the average life expectancy of the global population more than doubled between 1900 to 2015 – from about 30 years to over 70. Although population aging is an increasingly familiar concept, its wide- ranging effects are less fully understood and appreciated. Aging impacts every element of our society – the family, healthcare, education, politics, transportation, economy, media, military, and many others. Understanding these impacts and how public policies can address them is the focus of our work here at the Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy.
